- Some angry drivers are accusing Nima Police Officer of extortion
- The drivers are calling on President Akufo-Addo to sack the 'corrupt' Officer
Some angry drivers who ply their routes around 37 military hospital in Accra have called on President Akufo-Addo to fire an alleged corrupt Nima Police officer who is making his administration unpopular.
According to the Drivers Union, one Corporal Kamidu Yakubu, stationed at the Nima Police divisional command has vowed to torment the lives of the some drivers for voting against the erstwhile Mahama administration.
Some of the drivers who stormed the studios of Accra-based Adom TV accused the police officer of extorting monies ranging from Ghc200 to Ghc1,800 with the help of a sanitation court judge.
In an interview with Adom TV reporter, the PRO of the drivers, Yaw Barima called on President Akufo-Addo to sack Corporal Kamidu Yakubu at the Nima Police with immediate effect.
Yaw Barima in his interview insisted that Corporal Yakubu has openly said he will 'punish' drivers by extorting monies from them for voting into power the NPP administration.

“Police Corporal Kamidu extorts GhC 200 from us before taking any matter to the Nima Police Division. He says he has his own judge at the drivers’ court, therefore when you are sent there you’re forced by the judge to pay GHc1, 200,” the PRO alleged.
Yaw Barima stressed that they have petitioned the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards (PIPS), about the conduct of the police officer for disciplinary action but nothing has been done.
The drivers are therefore demanding the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to take action against the corrupt Nima police officer.
