Nigerian songstress, Omawumi has disclosed her unhappiness with the Nigeria Police Force, a sentiment which she shared on her Twitter.
It appears the Mgbele singer was a victim of an unruly stop-and-search routine, writing about being “disrespected” by uniformed officers who abused their office. She would have ended up seriously hurt if she hadn’t put her foot down and known her rights, she shared.
“I’m a proud Nigerian that louds the effort of the NPF(Nigeria police force) but today I was a victim of uniformed officers that abused their office.
If you want to stop and search, do it respectfully. I was disrespected today and if I didn’t put my foot down or I didn’t know my rights, I would have ended up seriously hurt.
We can do better by ourselves in any position we find ourselves. You owe it to your citizens to be/do better.”
