A student of the University of Ibadan, UI, has taken to social media to reveal that he was arrested and detained by police officers for not registering his company with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC.
The man in his post on Instagram mentioned that he is a graphics designer as well and the officers told him to pay the sum of N10,000 to bail himself since he is operating his graphic designing business ‘illegally.
I was arrested today by Nigerian Police on my way to school along Ikolaba / Bodija, I was on a bike when they stopped us they ask me what I do for a living, I told them am a graphic designer and also a student of University of Ibadan, I tendered my ID Card.
