Famous IG comedian Mr Macaroni has released a video narrating his experience with the Nigerian Police after he was arrested together with other protesters.
Recall that Macaroni and others persons were nabbed by the police for staging #OccupyLekkiTollgate which was held to register displeasure following the reopening of the tollgage.
According to the comedian, he and other persons were maltreated, stripped naked and brutalized. He added that the screens of his phones were also smashed. Macaroni said he will visit the hospital for a complete checkup after the traumatic experience.
He said: “I’m going to the hospital for a complete check. I have bruises all over. Them beat me, them beat me well, them say I go get sense.”
“The government is responsible for protection. So, let me ask, you had over 200 policemen out there yesterday, and you want to tell me you could not guarantee a peaceful protest if there was going to be one? It shows that you guys are irresponsible, all of you are irresponsible.”
Macaroni slammed all allegations that he had been bribed to support the opposition so that he could speak against the government. He appreciated the lawyers and those who helped in his release.
