The opening part of his thread reads;

“I finally carried out my social experiment.

Also, I drove around Ikeja at about 11:50pm, in mufti, in a private car.

I passed through two police points.

In fact, I spent five seconds at the first without a word from the police officer.

He simply waved me on.”
