A Nigerian man who had a bitter experience with Nigerian police and Immigration officers in Lagos, took to Instagram to lament over being a Nigerian.

According to @iam_minder, he got his passport for N35,000 but when he misplaced it, the Immigration officials asked him to pay N60,000 for a new one. However after he opted to report the incident to the police, the police officer at the police station who was watching ‘African Magic’ with his colleagues, asked him what kind of passport he misplaced and further told him to come back the next day because ‘he was busy’.
