Bez Harassed By Nigerian Police

Bez harassed by Nigerian police.

Nigerian singer, Bez recounted his harrowing encounter at the hands of police at Okota area of Lagos on September 16.

Despite having his wife, Tito Idakula and two-month-old daughter in the car with him, police accused the singer of faking his insurance document.

Narrating his experience, Bez said a policeman angrily got him ‘out of the car and pushed me under the rain into the station’ after he said he had no cash on him to bribe them.

Police showed me shege in Okota today, of all the documents in my life…they said I faked insurance…INSURANCE!!

According to him, they ordered him to write a statement about being in possession of a fake document, which he flatly refused.

They had guns so I just chilled.. They now brought out paper and told me to write a statement that I was in possession of a fake document

The paper was labelled Witness/Accused. I asked if they we’re arresting me.. They sais not yet. Am I a witness? No.. Accused? No…

I said based on the fact that I am none of the above.. I can’t write any statement, also it says the person has to write willingly…

…and no one is under any obligation to say anything. He now asked me if he put a gun to my head, I said no.. He now said oya start writing

I said Oga.. I am following what this paper says.. I am not writing anything… Meanwhile wife and baby still in car…making calls lol

Bez was later let off the hook after his documents were verified. But not without the police getting more apprehensive about him refusing to drop tips for them.

Finally a friend came to check up on my wife and baby…he suggested giving the police something… My wife said lai lai!!

Someone after verifying my documents called the police guys and told them to let me go..see vexing!!

— BEZ (@BEZidakula) September 16, 2016

 

‘Musician’ no wan drop Abi? They forced me again to write statement… I refused… That police woman..hm..vexed!! They aha let me go

My wife had even called the insurance people, verified the docs, went online.. The records were there…

At the end of the day, Bez believes the harassment could only occur because the law enforcers wield guns.

All this happened simply because they could. They had guns, I didn’t… I still don’t..lol… God bless Nigeria.
