The video which was first shared on twitter by one Gbemi Dennis, the NSCDC official was seen holding a long gun, entered into what looks like a kitchen area in an undisclosed environment and ransacked a bag that was laying on the table.

A lady who it is believed to be the owner of the bag was held in the background of the video stating that the bag contains N49,050 and the amount that was later returned by the officer was N27,050.
The incident has been described as a very unpatriotic act that is unexpected of an officer of the law. The video has further reduced how the Law enforcement agencies in Nigeria are perceived by Nigerians
