Omawumi Says She was Disrespected by the Police: ‘I Would Have been Seriously Hurt’

Omawumi has taken to her Twitter to share her bitter experience at the hands of officers of the Nigeria Police.

According to the singer, she got into an altercation with some of the officers who had stopped her to conduct an unprecedented search on her and things would have gone south had she not reminded them of her rights.

“If you want to stop and search.. do it respectfully. I was disrespected today and if I didn’t put my foot down or I didn’t know my rights, I would have ended up seriously hurt,” she tweeted.

Adding, “We can do better by ourselves.. in any position we find ourselves. You owe it to your citizens to be/do better.”

The police had yet to react to this as at press time.
