A lady driving through the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge, gets off her car as she confronts policemen harassing a bicycle rider on the road.
The lady making thevideo confronts to two Policemen who were harassing a young man holding his bicycle on Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge in Lagos state. The woman challenging the Police officers can be heard asking them if what they were doing was right.
She called out to them from the other side of the road, asking;
“Oga what you people are doing, is it right?”
One of the Policemen noticing she was making a video crossed the road to address her, he said she didn’t know what he did, she was just interfering. That did not stop her, she asked, him what did he do?
She told him, if it were thieves, you people will not do anything but you can harass someone for just riding a bicycle. The Police man did not give a detailed or convincing response to the woman, although this made the other Policeman with the bicycle rider stop harassing the man.
The officer who came close to speak with her picked his phone and was making a phone call. The lady who made the video; Uchndu Ijeoma Faith confirmed that they finally let the guy go. She took to her social media page to share the video with caption;
On my way back home from work,this happened on lekki ikoyi link bridge just now! A guy was riding his bicycle in peace and the police was rough handling him, i had to come down to stop the harassment as other motorists were telling them it was wrong ;they said “why should we put our mouth”…. I had to get down to do this video and asked what he did wrong and if it was a big lekki boy riding the bicycle would they harrass him like this.
For all we know, this might be a Musa/Seyi/Ugo that his oga sent to buy fuel.
After the whole back n forth, they finally let him go! And they really tried to ensure i delete the video, well i had sent to my second whatsapp and formed deletion….. this country needs a revamp! Total revamp!!!!!!
