Police Clearance in Nigeria

FH just called me in a panic saying that he is trying to get his police certificate and an acquaintance who is a police officer says:

1) he has to go get fingerprinted.
2) he has to undress and be checked for scars.
3) he has to submit the request through Benin City who will submit it to Lagos and bring the results back to Benin City. All of which will take 1-2 weeks.
4) he can not go directly to Lagos to get it.
5) the clearance will cost him 25,000 naira. (that seems like an awful lot to me).

FH does not live in Nigeria any longer. He is just home visiting and had to get a new passport, birth certificate and this police clearance. He has already been there since Dec 27th and needs to get back to The Gambia where he lives now. We really can't afford to have him spend another 2-3 weeks in Nigeria. He waited to get the police clearance last because he needed to get the passport and birth certificate first in order to present them when requesting the certificate.

Are the above steps correct? Is there anyway around this? Also he is under the impression that if he tells them he needs the clearance for immigration/travel purposes they will charge him more so he doesn't want to tell them exactly why he needs it. What should I advise him on that part?

hello guys,
I need to get a police clearance but I am not in Nigeria. I am in the carribbean islands so it is not possible for me to travel back home to obtain this.
How do you recommend I get this? And where do I get a police clearance from in Nigeria?
Thank you

This thread on Police Clearance provides quite some detail. Unfortunately it looks like you have to go to Lagos unless the Nigerian Police have changed their system. In any case, here is an address - perhaps you can write to them and ask.

tenyearwait was chosen when we passed the ten year point without any sight of a green card in any possible future and my wife and I assumed I would never get one - it's now twelve years but who's counting! ;O|

Thanks guys... I found out that I have to do some finger printing at a police station here in my current country. Then mail in the fingerprinted form along with biographic page of passport and photo to family in Nigeria so they had handle it for me in Lagos.
I got the form on another nigerian forum but funny when I want to the police criminal dept they also had a similar form!

All is already underway.I will get everything in a week. Thanks
