The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin has shared the rather shocking story of how a Nigerian seeking asylum abroad approached him and asked that the police to declared him wanted.

Posting via his X handle, Hundeyin wrote;

'‘Please, declare me wanted!’

I was stupefied. I blinked and looked at him again. ‘What did you say,’ I asked.

‘Please, I want you to declare me wanted,’ he repeated.

‘Why do you want to be declared wanted,’ I inquired, amused.

‘Actually, I am applying for asylum at xyz Embassy. During the interview, I told them that I am being persecuted to the point of being declared wanted by the Police.

‘They now asked for evidence of the ‘wanted’ declaration. I can easily do the artwork but I know they will come and verify. That is why I want it from the source.’


And I thought I had seen it all.''
