A police officer in Lagos was arrested on Saturday after SaharaReporters published pictures of him drunk in public while in uniform.
SaharaReporters broke the story on Saturday with pictures of the officer grossly intoxicated in the Amuwo Odofin area of Lagos. A crowd of onlookers gather around the officer, whose first name the pictures revealed as Aminu, while he struggles to hold himself upright.
