A video shared widely on social media shows a heated exchange between a staff member at a Conex filling station in Lungi, Sierra Leone, and a customer. The customer reportedly called the police after refusing to pay a 10 leone bribe to obtain fuel.

According to reports, the customer believed that paying an additional 10 leone on top of the official price of 30 leone for fuel constituted an act of corruption. The fuel station worker allegedly became irate and verbally aggressive following the customer’s refusal and his decision to involve the authorities.

The social media video has garnered significant attention, sparking discussions about bribery and corruption in Sierra Leone. The specific actions taken by the police or the filling station’s management in response to the incident are unclear at this time.
