Paul Okoye, leading Nigerian artiste and dancer, has described the country’s police as a “bunch of illiterate” who are “busy disgracing” its citizens.
The singer, better known as Rudeboy, took to his Instastory on Tuesday, where he gave his take on the police after having reportedly shared videos featuring Nigerians who were perceived to have been brutalized by operatives of the force.
According to him, the police are undermining the global efforts of musicians, athletes, and celebrities like himself and bringing the country to disrepute as against the task with which the force has been saddled.
“While musicians and sportsmen and women and young entrepreneurs are making the country proud all over the world, Nigeria police are busy disgracing us. Bunch of illiterate fools,” Okoye wrote.
Okoye, a member of the now defunct Psquare group, joins a list of celebrities to voice their displeasure over the manner in which police officers manhandle Nigerians.
