Actor Damola Olatunji Charged To Court After Confronting A Police Officer For Slapping His P.A (VIDEO)
Actor Damola Olatunji has been accused with assaulting a police officer for slapping his P.A. in Lagos’ Abule Egba neighborhood.
Remember that a police officer was seen covering his face in a video that went viral yesterday after Damola confronted him and his colleagues for smacking his P.A. because he (Damola) “requested them to allow a young man whose bike they detained to drive it.”
After revealing that he is being arrested at Area P police division, the actor was prosecuted in court on allegations of “public inciting and assaulting police officials.”
Lanre Adediwura, a filmmaker and actress, stated that Damola was taken to the Ogba Magistrate Court after being “held in police custody for resisting police intimidation.”
I can’t imagine Damola Olatunji @damolaolatunji had been in police custody since yesterday only for standing against police intimidation. He is currently being taken to Ogba Magistrate court.
Please well-meaning Nigerians, we need you to get this to the appropriate quarter.
Also sharing a video of Damola in court, Lanre wrote;
All we are asking for is freedom for @damolaolatunji
He was only defending a fellow Nigerian Citizen against possible humiliation. He is not a trouble maker as record has it.
His only offence was standing for a Nigerian.
Here are some mixed reactions evoked from Nigerians on social media;
