This unarmed citizen barely escaped getting killed by Nigerian police officers. I hope they face justice, hand-cuffs and mug shots to boot as it’s the norm now. pic.twitter.com/UYgPZIrnJZ

This happened 4 days ago at Oja Oba, Ogundele Street, close to Abule Egba under bridge.👇
If this was how Seun Kuti assaulted the officer, Nigerian Police would have claimed the officer is dead.

If you're my friend you don't have to be telling me everytime that you are my friend. Your actions and inactions will proof that. For the fact that @PoliceNG keeps trying to make us believe that they are our friends with officers like these shows they are our biggest enemy.

Maybe it’s high time people watching around should step in during this barbaric act cos to me, this police guys are criminals, they robbed this man’s bike and ran away cos if one disobeys the law, you should arrest him & his bike not running away with the bike. NPF is a disgrace https://t.co/i980LLStV9
