Popular comedian, Debo Adebayo aka Mr Macaroni has recounted his ordeal in the hands of Policemen after he was apprehended alongside other protesters during the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest in February 2021.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, April 18, he alleged that Police officers took turn to beat him.
He wrote, “That very day, I swore never to stop using my platform to call out the evil that the Police do. If they can do that to someone people know, imagine what they do to hundreds of thousands of unknown Nigerians.”
”We are in court though. We filed since last month; Aluta Continua. When I was at Adeniji police station, the police officers took turns to beat me up. They were even calling themselves to come and beat Mr Macaroni.”
“They said in my life when next I hear police, I will run! One said if not that people would ask about me, he would have killed me. I should promote the same police institution that oppresses Nigerians? The majority of Police officers are just there to steal, rob, harass, brutalise and oppress the people. We see it happen every day.”
“You swore an oath to protect, yet you kill and destroy. Zero conscience! Every day, there is always one negative report or the other about the Nigeria Police.”
