The distasteful tales of police brutality, as well as extrajudicial killings in Nigeria, has been a sore point for its citizens since no one knows who will be the next victim.
Since the police is a respecter of no persons, Music producer, Olumide Ogunade, popularly known as ID Cabasa, has narrated how he was slapped by a policeman in Lagos State.
ID Cabasa said the unfortunate incident was the resultant effect of the typical rich man versus poor man tussle.
He, however, said after the incident, the police recognised him and started pleading.
The music producer said;
“I had a very unfortunate incident this night which really shows how rotten we’ve become as a people!
“I can categorically say that Nigerians are the problem not Nigeria! The Country(landmass) is not the problem but the Nation(People) are d problem.
“Okay, this night a young fellow Nigerian guy driving a Range Rover sport drove rough nearly hitting d UBER I was in on my way back home with a friend!
“The UBER guy was so scared and was trying to talk to d range guy but typical rich man-poor man tussle, the range guy overtook us and asked police guys guarding a club near bay lounge to slap the driver, I came down to have a conversation with d Range guy and in all sincerity we were having a gentleman’s discussion before the police guy he spoke to earlier started pushing me and guarding me from talking to d guy!
“In a nutshell d police guy SLAPPED me!!!! Then people gathered, recognized me and bam he started begging!!! Sigh!
“How did we come to lose our humanity for vanity? Why give gun to a person that is emotionally unbalanced and unintelligent?
“I wept inside my heart because it would have been a different case of chancing if it was not me. Sigh.”
ID Cabasa’s ordeal is coming after rapper Ikechukwu’s unpleasant encounter with operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
The rapper had said he was kidnapped, robbed and assaulted by SARS operatives who bundled him in their Hilux van from Lekki to Lagos Island.
