Nollywood Actor, Gideon Okeke Survives Police Brutality in Lagos

Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke, is not happy with some men of the Nigerian Police after he had fallen victim of their half-baked attitude I Lagos some days back.

The actor was said to have had a minor accident with another vehicle and had to seek the help of the Police to clear the already building up traffic for them for six things only for it to turn out bad.

Both the actor and the woman whom he hit were severely dealt with as they were both left hospitalized.

“I AM NOT A MERE STATISTIC. Yesterday, after I had finished from a scheduled meeting with @charlesotudor I left the Eko Hotel and joined the gradually building traffic leading on to Lekki. Only a few minutes from my meeting, had I unfortunately run into a minor collision with another driver, Mrs Mosunmola Ilori, at the Lekki Phase 1 roundabout. We both inspected the damage(s), conferred and thought first, to get off the road for oncoming traffic. Just less than 10feet away from all this were the Lastma and Police, sharing the police post at the roundabout.

“All I asked, was their assistance (witnessed by Mrs Ilori) in getting some barricades off the road for us to park properly and this scenario I have just described, turned into a full blown fiasco, seeing 4 police officers pounce on me and 2 others on Mrs Ilori and her niece. I have come off this incident with stitches in my mouth and chin. Mrs Ilori as well, to the full glare and amazement of pedestrians and moving traffic, was ruffled up, beat, and dragged on the tarred ground. The Leading man here was one Officer IDEH DONATUS who severally pointed a gun in my chest. I hereby humbly call on the executive governor of Lagos state, @akinwunmiambode the Vice President @profosinbajo the @policenglagos and its Officers, to kindly exercise the authority of your offices in addressing these civil injustices filed at the #MarokoPoliceStation. Myself, Mrs Ilori, her niece and every other Nigerian citizen, don’t need to feel vulnerable with the police. We appreciate them for their efforts in Protecting Lives and Property,but not for them to be THE THREAT!”
