‘How Police and LASTMA officials ruffled up, beat and dragged me on the tarred ground’ – Actor, Gideon Okeke

Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke has narrated his recent ugly encounter with officers of the Nigerian Police Force and LASTMA.

Narrating his experience, the actor said, ‘yesterday, after I had finished from a scheduled meeting with Charles Otudor I left the Eko Hotel and joined the gradually building traffic leading on to Lekki’. 

Only a few minutes from my meeting, had I unfortunately run into a minor collision with another driver, Mrs Mosunmola Ilori, at the Lekki Phase 1 roundabout. We both inspected the damage(s), conferred and thought first, to get off the road for oncoming traffic. 
Just less than 10feet away from all this were the Lastma and Police, sharing the police post at the roundabout.

All I asked, was their assistance (witnessed by Mrs Ilori) in getting some barricades off the road for us to park properly and this scenario I have just described, turned into a full blown fiasco, seeing 4 police officers pounce on me and 2 others on Mrs Ilori and her niece. I have come off this incident with stitches in my mouth and chin. Mrs Ilori as well, to the full glare and amazement of pedestrians and moving traffic, was ruffled up, beat, and dragged on the tarred ground. The Leading man here was one Officer IDEH DONATUS who severally pointed a gun in my chest.
