The driver, identified as Muhammed Danjuma, aged 56, who hailed from Nguroje, was said to have offered N40 instead of N50 demanded by the mobile policeman, but the amount was rejected by the policeman, insisting that he must give him the balance of N10.

It was gathered that driver brought out N1,000 note and give the policeman, saying he did not N50 but the policeman also rejected the N1,000 note, insisting that the driver must give him the N50.
