- The funnyman was among 40 other protesters arrested by the police during a demonstration against the reopening of the Lekki Tollgate where a number of unarmed protesters were said to have been killed by a team of Army personnel
Popular online comedian, Mr. Macaroni has recounted his ordeal in a police station during when he was arrested during one of the #EndSARS protests.
The skit maker stated that while he was in custody, policemen took turns to beat him because he is ‘Mr Macaroni’.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, he further noted that he has commenced legal actions against the police institution.
He wrote, “That very day, I swore never to stop using my platform to call out the evil that the Police do. If they can do that to someone people know, imagine what they do to hundreds of thousands of unknown Nigerians.
”We are in court though. We filed since last month; Aluta Continua. 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? The majority of Police officers are just there to steal, rob, harass, brutalise and oppress the people. We see it happen every day.
“You swore an oath to protect, yet you kill and destroy. Zero conscience! Every day, there is always one negative report or the other about the Nigeria Police.”
