Budding singer, Oxlade took to Twitter on Thursday to drag Nigerian police officers after he was allegedly harassed during a stop and search operation in Surulere, Lagos.

Before his release, the driver of the Uber he boarded had already taken to the platform to announce that ‘Away’ crooner was being carted away by men of the force.

“@iamDo2dtun Good day Dotun. I’m a bolt driver, I picked up Oxlade on a trip and right now the police stopped us at ojuelegba bus stop in the name of stop and search. They have him in a bus with plate number XP314JJJ. Pls help retweet”
