-A man seen in a video reprimands 2 officers for bribe-taking
-The police officers stood by the road side as the man asked them to change their attitude
A video which has surfaced on the internet and has since gone viral showed a quite infuriated man telling off two police officers who were standing by the road side for allegedly taking bribes from commercial vehicle drivers.
The video which has since gone viral saw the man seated in the front passenger seat of a vehicle angrily addressing the policemen who were standing by the road side.
He asked the policemen to change their attitude because by taking the bribes, they were aiding and abetting crime to be committed by some of the drivers.
He asked them to change or face his wrath as he threatened to arrest them the next time he saw such a ‘disgraceful’ act in public.
It is quite unclear who the man was or his position but it appeared he had a lot of clout about him and commanded a lot of respect.
He went on to quiz what GHc 2 could do to the finances of the policemen and jokingly asked why they did not take huge sums like GHc 20 or GHc 50 instead.
He asked them to take any offender to court instead of ‘shamefully’ taking bribes by the road side to justify the actions of the offender.

He said Ghana was not going to change if some of these acts were not brought to an abrupt end in the shortest possible time.
He asked them to change their mentality but he bemoaned the fact that some ‘foolish’ drivers would still give the GHc2 ‘bribe’ to get away with their offences.
After pouring his heart out, someone could be overheard in the video asking him to take it easy as the policemen standing by the roadside just looked on.
The irate man then asked his driver to ‘drive on’ after he had told the police off for taking bribes.
The issue of bribery and corruption is believed to be high in many state institutions with many people clamoring for a change in attitude to ensure that the right things are done all the time without fear or favor.
