A POLICEMAN SLAPS MAN FOR TAKING A VIDEO OF A LEBANESE


 A Nigerian man, simply identified as Ajibola, has alleged that he was thoroughly beaten by a police officer because he was taking a video of a Lebanese man assaulting his Nigerian staff.

Ajibola on his Twitter page, @madejibo, narrated the incident which reportedly happened on the 20th of July, at Novare Mall, Lekki, Lagos State.

He also shared a video of the altercation saying he wants to start a thread with the hashtag, #lebanesebrutality in Nigeria.

He wrote on his Twitter page;

“Am starting a thread on #lebanesebrutality in Nigeria in #Novarelekki

“On the 20th of July, 2018, I came into Novare Mall to watch a movie Lara and the Beats at about 830pm.

“After the movie, on my way out, I noticed a Lebanese man in HandH restaurant and cafe ill-treating a Nigerian and I brought out my phone to record

“The Lebanese man saw me and accosted me with the sole aim of seizing my phone.

“I tried to resist but he overpowered me. At this point, a group of security men came including a man who introduced himself as the Chief Security Officer (CSO).

“The CSO ordered I handed over the phone to him but I blatantly refused. He sent a guard to call the police.

“A policeman came and without listening to my side of the story gave me a deafening slap and dragged me by my trousers (like a criminal) to a police post within the premises.

“I was forced by the police, Novare’s security and the Lebanese man to delete the video from my phone.

“The staff that was been beaten by the Lebanese was cajoled to say that the Lebanese man was only playing with him.

“Under so much duress by the police, I was told to write a statement which was dictated to me. For the fear of my safety, I complied.

“The Lebanese man also claimed that I cut his wristwatch strap, but in the video, he had no wristwatch on while he was beating the staff.

“The police said for taking the video I had done something criminal according to the law of the land. I was left to go around 12:30am.

“On my way to my car the Lebanese man tried to offer me money but I refused. After driving to safety with a stroke of thought, I recovered the video and posted it on Instagram.

“I was thoroughly harassed in Novare Mall, a place I come to practically every day to shop.

“I have also reported this incident to people in case I am attacked in the nearest future for putting out the video.”
