Okada Ban: Crowd disgrace police officers after seizing Power bike in Lagos
Following the harassment he suffered from police officers for riding Power bike, a Nigerian man identified as Nmutaka Chikwendu has narrated how police officers were disgraced by Crowd for seizing Power Bike.
Chikwendu disclosed that the incident occured when police officers approached him to arrest him over the ban of motorcycles and tricycles while heading to work, dodging massive potholes and meandering through heavy traffic.
While narrating how the incident occured, he revealed that he was surprised with two unsual things and they are; the speed with which a huge crowd built up and how people yelled at the cops and also the level of intelligence of our cops, a team of four senior officers with guns who could not say anything meaningful beyond they sent us signal to arrest all bikes.
He further disclosed that a good Samaritan parked his car showed them the broadcast sent by Lagos state police command yet the police officers refused to read it.
The good Samaritan later called the numbers in the broadcast and the policemen refused to speak with their superiors. The man put his phone on speaker and we could all hear the police command asking if it was okada and the whole crowd roared “No! Our street crew cops refused to budge, he narrated.
Nmutaka Chikwendu added that the Samaritan eventually called their DPO who asked them to release me then they started looking for one Officer Ojo of ifako police station who took my bike key and went away.
Crowd kept building. Policemen became scared and tried to disperse crowd. People refused to budge. I actually started getting worried and started asking people to leave. They said they wouldn’t move until I was released, he narrated.
Eventually the Ojo fellow sauntered out with my key and I started my bike revved it a few times which drew cheers from the crowd and continued heading to work, he concluded.
