Yesterday, My dancer @tomisin_tomtom was harassed for dancing on the streets by policemen not wearing uniform. What was his crime? dancing!!! Only in #NIGERIA that uniformed men will rather Prey on the innocent and protect the guilty.🖤💔✊🏾 . Thankfully he was released yesterday but they have seized his phone.WHY? THEY SAID HE HAS TO COME AND SEE THEIR AREA COMMANDER THE NEXT DAY!! WHY?? WHY SUCH ABUSE OF POWER. MAKING videos and taking pictures is not a crime in ALL civilised countries around the world. let’s make sure we share this video so our loved ones can be protected. Thank you @aleeygiwa and @taiyealiyu
