Three ways the Nigerian Police can embarrass you

28 September 2016, 13:11

Lagos - After  Nollywood actor, Kalu Ikeagwu was arrested in connection with a theft and murder case, he was later  released after clearing his name.

Here three ways the Nigerian Police embarrass citizens, even if you are a big name in the film industry. 

1. They came in  a white unmarked bus, and one of the occupants of the bus pointed an AK-47 automatic rifle on the head of an unarmed Kalu Ikeagwu, before handcuffing him.

2. The Police did not tell him why he was being arrested until after transferring him to three different Police stations and interrogating him about a telephone number.

3. He was arrested for being the last person his friend called with a stolen phone.

The newly married actor, who returned home to his Gbagba Crescent flat, off College Road, around 8:30 pm on Monday, explained to his worried neighbors that his personal assistant bought a stolen phone from Computer Village in Ikeja, and the thieves reportedly killed one of the victims of the robbery.

He told neighbors that the crime happened in Abuja, and the phone was traced to Lagos by the security agents who later came for him since his address and name were used during the purchase.
