Michelle Dede Shocking Experience At The Hands Of Police

Media personality, Michelle Dede has opened up on the gruelling experience she had with the police somewhere in Lekki, Lagos. The celebrity took to her page to appeal to the government to do something about these despicable acts.

She wrote:

“At about 6am this morning. I was stopped by policemen at the checkpoint on Adewunmi Adepimpe Drive, Lekki Phase 1. Coming from a prayer vigil. I and the female Taxify driver where harassed by officers and one of them eventually grabbed and pushed me violently.

Had I not been standing in front of another officer, whom I fell onto, I would have been pushed to the ground.
They called us prostitutes, including hurling other insults and had I not called one of the attendees of the vigil, I’m sure worse would have happened. The officers walked away only when they heard a male voice on the speaker of my phone.
Aggressive behaviour by armed policemen is unacceptable, especially when no one has threatened or physically touched the policeman!
In Nigeria many people have horror stories of police brutality and only rarely is something done about it.
If policemen want to check a car, do so, don’t pretend you want to check a car, when the only thing you are interested in is my wallet. I have previously been asked by policemen at the same check point to empty the contents of my bag and wallet onto the boot of the car. I did so so quietly, even as they searched through my belongings and counted the money spread on the boot!
This IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR BY ANY POLICEMEN!! What happens if a woman is alone?? What happens if it’s a defenceless young woman or elderly woman?? .

I’m fed up and disgusted by what is considered NORMAL, in this country. Something must be done about the checkpoint on Adewunmi Adebimpe Drive as the policemen there ALWAYS, ALWAYS!!! HARASS WOMEN WHOM ARE IN CARS IN GROUPS OR ALONE, YET DON’T DO SO TO MALE DRIVERS/PASSENGERS.. IF YOU ARE A WOMAN READING THIS? DO NOT PASS THROUGH THAT ENTRANCE ONCE ITS DARK AT NIGHT, ASWELL AS IN THE EARLY HOURS OF THE MORNING. ”
