Popular Nigerian comedian, Debo Adebayo also known as Mr. Macaroni has taken to Twitter to recount his bitter experience while in Adeniji Police station.
Recall that Mr Macaroni was arrested alongside other Nigerian youths for disobeying the Lagos State government by staging a protest against police brutality in the country.
The funny man who mentioned that he was a victim of police brutality made this known after a fan called him out to use his platform to promote institutions in Nigeria such as the police force rather than instigate his followers against them.
In response to this, the 28 year old explained that while he was in police custody, police officers took turns to beat him up.
According to him, the officers told him that if he comes back to the world and hears the word Police, he would run for his life.
Here’s what he tweeted;
“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? Majority of your officers are just there to steal, rob, harass, brutalize and oppress the people. We see it happen everyday. You swore an oath to protect. Yet you kill and destroy. Zero conscience”
