As member of House of Representatives and club owner, Shina Peller still in Police detention, Nigerians have flooded the social media to pour their thoughts on the matter.
Fellow member of the House of Rep, Akin Alabi had taken to his Twitter space to lament on the state of Police brutality while sharing the news of his colleague’s arrest. Akin tweeted,
So founder of Quilox and House of Representatives member, @ShinaPeller went to bail his customers that were illegally arrested… then the Police at Maroko police station detained him as well. Police brutality knows no status.
In another tweet he added:
Now they are trying to swing the narrative by lying that he tried to invade the police station. Lies. He went to bail those that were arrested. He was arrested. CP even boasted that he has a score to settle with him. Madness!
In another tweet he said:
You arrest those parked on the road. Someone goes to bail the people arrested. You arrest the person to. That summarizes why @ShinaPeller was arrested.
While some Nigerians sympathized with Shina, some think its a good thing as the table has turned against the high and mighty. One Adedayo tweeted,
This is what an average Nigerian youth face on a daily basis,You all see it and pretend it’s a norm,the table has just turned to your side. Fight it alone and don’t disturb us with super story.

@Samakopsg For once it seemed like the police acted in good faith.. The activities of quilox and Shina peller caused a public nuisance and for once they acted right in detaining them.. You should commend them and admonish your friend to make better arrangement next time. Quit the fuss oloye
@Seanblingz That’s good.. let it go round, maybe the police will be reformed.
@dH_incolet How pathetic can this police rubbish be tho? Time for the house to look for something to do o.
@ayokanmiii They only arrested him bcos they want bribe. There is a lot to be done to make this country sane again. I’m glad you people are getting to see it no child’s play
