Singer Omawumi isn’t very happy with the Nigeria Police Force, a sentiment which she shared on her Twitter.
It looks like she was a victim of an unruly stop-and-search routine, writing about being “disrespected” by uniformed officers who abused their office.
She would have ended up seriously hurt if she hadn’t put her foot down and known her rights, she shared.
I’m a proud Nigerian that louds the effort of the NPF(Nigeria police force) but today I was a victim of uniformed officers that abused their office.
If you want to stop and search, do it respectfully. I was disrespected today and if I didn’t put my foot down or I didn’t know my rights, I would have ended up seriously hurt.
We can do better by ourselves in any position we find ourselves. You owe it to your citizens to be/do better.
Omawumi becomes yet another celebrity to fall victim to police misbehavior, after Lola OJ who was “physically assaulted,” DJ Obi whose tire was allegedly shot at, and Praiz who was arrested.
