A group of young boys filmed the moment some police officers extorted them through mobile transfer.
The officers arrested and bundled them into their vehicle after which money was demanded apparently for their release.
A video making the rounds online shows when a policeman asked one of the boys if he has sent the money to the account they provided.
The two boys were surrounded in the vehicle by no less than three officers. The video has sparked outrage as Nigerians on social media called on police authorities to bring an end to such unprofessional behaviour.

Similarly, National Daily reported last week that the Nigeria Police Force have dismissed Opeyemi Kadiri, a police corporal, who was captured in a recent viral video assaulting a young man in Lagos State.
In the footage, the armed officer was having an exchange with the victim who challenged him for forcefully searching his phone.
A statement released by Force Spokesperson, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Friday, said Opeyemi was dismissed after an orderly room trial at the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters in Abuja.
