“They manhandled me” – Korra Obidi cries out over experience with Lagos police (video)
US-based Nigerian singer and dancer, Korra Obidi, has cried out over a painful experience of being mistreated by police officers in Lagos.
The mother of two shared her displeasure with the treatment she suffered from police officers while on a Lagos road.
She expressed her dissatisfaction with the cops’ treatment of her and their friend during a regular inspection of their car in an Instagram post.
Korra brought up an instance where a police officer disregarded their request to lock the car doors so that they could conduct a thorough examination of their paperwork.
She also recalled another interaction in which an officer knelt on the driver’s seat and conducted a thorough inside check of the vehicle.
The cops searched Korra’s bag and personal items during a quick meal, which Korra thought was harsh.
Korra responded by urging the police to focus on catching dishonest politicians rather than harassing young people.
She argued that by refocusing their efforts, the nation’s high fuel prices might be reduced.
In her words;
“Attempting Taco Tuesday in Lagos. Several police stops with random men manhandling me and searching my bag and personal belongings @frankhasaplan.
Lagos Police, let the youth breath for God’s sake. If you dedicate this much energy to catching politicians who are looting, fuel will not be #560 Naira today. SMH.”
