“This happened right in front of my estate in Abuja. On my way out I saw police men chasing and manhandling a hungry pedestrian because he wasn’t wearing a mask.
I came down from the car and begged them to stop beating him while I offered to go back home or give them money to Buy him one but one of the police men started telling me to mind my business and get out and I said to him that I wouldn’t go anywhere till a solution was proffered and that was how he hit and pushed me then I decided to bring out my phone.
My phone was grabbed by one of them.by then people started stopping and begged me to leave before I get killed for nothing.
Things can’t continue this way!!!
I will never run away from speaking against injustice!”
