A woman has accused Nigerian police officers of brutality. She said they dragged her phone from her then allegedly beat her friend.
@MariOwonifari shared a video of her friend allegedly being harassed by some men whose faces cannot be seen in the video. She said the men are police officers.
In the video, the officers are heard intimidating the woman but she informed them that she knows her rights. This seemed to anger the officers and they got violent.
@MariOwonifari said the incident happened on Sheraton Link Rd, Opebi, Ikeja, Lagos.
Sharing the video, she wrote: “It’s sad [email protected] turns a blind eye to it’s officers who harass and rob it’s citizens of their rights, money, and time. At about 12am, my friend Taiwo was hit by an officer with badge ‘448204’. This same officer snatched my phone off me. This happened on Sheraton Link Rd.”
She added: “Stop putting us at risk with untrained and underpaid Policemen with Guns! Everyday we lose our properties, monies, rights and lives to @PoliceNG!! I’m a victim and it must stop!!”
