CITY POLICE APOLOGIZES TO MAN WHO WAS FALSELY ACCUSED OF PLEDGING

The fear of any man wearing traditional white kandura is the beginning of wisdom especially in the United states. After an embarrassment meted out to Emirati man who was falsely accused of pledging allegiance to ISIS by a hotel employee. The city of Avon, Ohio, has apologized to the man
On Wednesday, June 29, the Avon Police Department received a 911 call from the sister of Alexis Silva, who worked as a desk clerk at the Fairfield Inn and Suites. In an audio recording of the 911 call, which was posted by ABC affiliate WEWS-TV in Cleveland, the clerk’s sister was heard saying that a man was “pledging his allegiance or something to ISIS.”
Police then received a second call from the father of the clerk, who asked for help with the matter on behalf of his daughter.
Ahmad Al-Menhali, 41, according to The Associated Press, was detained at gunpoint on Wednesday while he was wearing a traditional white kandura, or ankle-length robe, and headscarf after the female clerk was suspicious that he had link to the terror group. Police camera footage showed officers detaining and searching al-Menhali before determining he was not a threat. He collapsed moments after he was released and was briefly hospitalized.
However, the Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen told ABC News that al-Menhali was “never arrested” as a result of the accusation, but that he was handcuffed and “briefly held” in a local police department
“When you hear someone say he pledged allegiance to ISIS, that changes it. Then you find out that statement was never made and it just kind of angers us,” he said. The city’s police department issued a statement of apology to al-Menhali for the incident. It is only hoped this will not scare other abiding Muslims in the country.

Yes people are bound to make police even the police. but when they do, can our own Nigerian police apologise when they falsely arrest an innocent citizen. Your guess is as good as mine.
