Speaking with The PUNCH on Tuesday, however, the police spokesman said it was wrong of Davido and his team to take the law into their own hands.
Elkana said a citizen has the right to arrest another person and hand over to the police immediately. He said no citizen had the right to parade another citizen.
Elkana noted that a popular rich man, Onye Eze, was arrested earlier in the year for arresting a popular blogger, Blessing Okoro, who had taken photos of his house, claiming ownership of the property.
The police spokesman said,
“Even if someone defamed your character, you are to hand over the person to the police immediately but to parade them is wrong. The person being paraded has the right to sue. Private citizens have no right to parade another person.
“Not all policemen even have the power to parade suspects.
“You cannot be a judge in your own case. If he feels aggrieved, he should lodge a complaint and not go to effect an arrest. He cannot conclude the guilt of another person. There must be an investigation and only a court can pronounce them guilty.”
