Singer Yemi Alade has reacted after dancer Eromose Ordia got allegedly harassed by police officer on Salah day.
Eromose Ordia was harassed for dancing and getting filmed in a restricted area. He has since been released from custody.
Reacting to the incident, Yemi Alade wondered why uniform men in Nigeria would rather pretty on innocent citizens while they protect the guilty.
“This is Nigeria, Lagos state CMS police station Yesterday, My dancer @tomisin_tomtom was harassed for dancing on the streets by policemen not wearing uniform. What was his crime? dancing!!! Only in #NIGERIA that uniformed men will rather Prey on the innocent and protect the guilty.
“Thankfully he was released yesterday but they have seized his phone.WHY? THEY SAID HE HAS TO COME AND SEE THEIR AREA COMMANDER THE NEXT DAY!! WHY?? WHY SUCH ABUSE OF POWER.
