“The Nigeria police is a mess” Oluwaseun Osowobi who made the TIME 100 Next List reveals she was arrested
Oluwaseun Osowobi, who recently got a special shout out from Barack Obama when she was named in the TIME 100 Next List, has called out the Nigerian police.
Oluwaseun said she was in a car when her driver was stopped by some policemen because he was answering a call while driving. She took a photo of the incident, and, as a result, was arrested and taken to the police station.
She tweeted: “I just got released from the Police Station. The person driving the vehicle I was in was on a call, he was stopped and was about to be arrested + handcuffed.
“My crime: I took a photo evidence of the situation & said nothing to calm the driver down.
“The Nigeria Police is a mess.”
She added: “I have so much resentment in me.
“I sat at the Station & heard a female Police officer brag about how a man was left in the cell for days because they wanted to teach him a lesson for insisting he knew his rights as a Nigerian citizen when he was arrested. Other officers laughed.”
