Police Brutality Around The World by yahamisu: 6:36am On Aug 28, 2019
I skipped the the queue and started yelling at the lady with Black american accent, na so them dial police number and all of a sudden, 3 officers came to me at the Murtala Mohammed IntL. Airport Lagos.

They where very polite and cordial. i almost thought i was dreaming at that moment. the shock got me to a point that i was just mute. so, one of them said to me, "Dan uwa, yane?" ......the second one said "omo iya, shewa pa" .....the third one said "Nnwa Nnem, Ke ije".......the shiver of joy got me so bad that i was only able to utter the words lafiya mowa pa odinnma..... Meeeeeehhnnnn the excitment got me so bad that even though i kick totally against corruption of any form, the soft brotherly feel i felt which resonated from them made me want to empty my whole wallet and luguage for them.........(i know first hand how soldiers and police are dying on a regular basis. having their families abandoned while thier bosses and living the luxurious life style in conjuction with the political looters).... jist for another day niyen

I am feeling good tonight, this thing got me thanking GOD for life, I cant explain........

Thats the song i woke up to while my friend tore through the bushes and burnt rubber through the i95 south on our way to North Carolina for a deal we just had to catch before anybody beats us to it. (theres alot of hard working Nigerians out here ya'll).

Anyway, we should have left Baltimore at about 3:00pm but my co-pilot....(lol) Mr Ajibade kept delaying and by the time he got to me, it was time for me to go yell at our apartment manager for not sending the maintanance team to come fix our A/C. I've waited for a whole week and got nothing but excuses while the weather was freaking hot and fans raise electric bill like crazy.

Got there, waited for the oga and it was a white lady who thinks she's boss. walked like a boss and spoke like a boss. check this out guys.......

white lady : whats going on here? (with her head up high).
me : am here to see the person in charge. (looking straight into her eyes).

white lady : am in charge, whats the problem (am sure she felt whos this black fool disturbing my tea and cheese sandwich break {to the whites reading this, i know what you eat....lol}).
me : why isnt my A/C fixed (the GREEN WHITE GREEN EAGLE in me was about to burst farts on her {damn!!! i just farted}).

I was already seated but then she told my friend to sit down (as if she was about to change our diapers and spank us)

white lady : i think you've been given a schedule and the person in charge of that.... HEY! HEY!! HEY!!! STOP THAT BULLSHIT RIGHT THERE. I burst out on her then it went on.
me : (this time really pissed off) why tha hell do we have to keep waiting? will you accept such? what tha hell? am hot and that A/C has to be fixed today or else....

I kept goin on and on. for everytime she tried saying anything, i blocked her with my naija accent filled english. till i walked out of the office and slammed the door.

Well, Just like Julius Malema said, when a Nigerian is speaking to you, you think he's shouting at you or fighting with you(my people in ojota come to mind...lol). but "hey, wenna"......"Askis"....... he's just making conversation and in most cases we even try extra hard to make YOU understand what we saying cos we understand you fine abuti.

You know why?

Thats simply cos the diversity we have in its own is strength and i think if its ever true that we came through animals, then Nigerians are a mixture of the apex animals in the food chain, from the biggest elephants to the fastest cheeters. from the strongest Sharks in the sea to the highest flying EAGLE breeds in the world.

I got a call about 20 minutes after i left the house and voila....they wher requesting permission over the phone to get into my room to fix me a temporal unit.....(you know say na we dey run obodo eh eh eh.....{awon temi for shita. oshey yemi alade i see you}) less than a week later, they brought a brand new unit and the service team keeps coming once in a while to check up on the efficiency of the new unit. so you kinda see how efficient a society with true leaders who make laws to protect even common me. Those people know i could sue them and it will cost them alot.

Lesson 1 : Dont Bleep with me kawai
Lesson 2: Why tha hell are Nigerians mute about our evil politicians?

Anyway......where was I?........

Re: Police Brutality Around The World by yahamisu: 4:01pm On Aug 28, 2019
Well, between me and my partner, we couldnt get set to leave for our trip untill about 6:00pm. Mind you, our destination was about 5hrs 34mins drive and the only reason the seller was willing to accept that price was because she had a loan she had to urgently repay the following day(at least thats what she said to me). and she was willing to complete the deal even if we got there at 12Midnight. the only clause is that she accepted other buyers to come from other destinations so it was a matter of "first come, first serve".

As the song by Wizkid finished playing, the next song blasting was "Rara by Tekno". Great song by a great artist. (Alhaji Tekno, you are better than that stunt you pulled at Lekki toll gate. i got kids mehn and am not ready to have them growing around mobile strip joints. Abeg, make we fix naija, not destroy it)

Suddenly, Ajibade got off the highway and while he was trying to get his GPS straightned, i checked mine and asked him what we where doing in the streets, we still had about 2hrs : 30mins to go and i knew we where not there yet (cos its familiar territory for me). then my phone rang and it was Lebogang.

Just having our usual talks on watsapp video when all of a sudden, the blue and white light came on behind us. My wife already knew this was definitely trouble. Richmond Virginia Police where no nonsense type of cops. especially to blacks. (Well, we be Naija, we no dey fear nothing!!!).

Immediately the police light came on, the siren sound followed, so we pulled over. My wife and I agreed to have her stay quiet on the background and just listen(Mind you this is a white neighborhood and we are BLACK).

Put your hands where i can see em'......

Those where the first set of commands we got from the officer walking towards the car from the left. I was about to look to the left when the second officer yelled the same to me from the passengers side.

We both immediately obeyed at the same time.

Why do you have your full beam light on? (first question coming from the right)....
You have weed in this car? (second question coming from the left).....

In the heat of the mild commotion, before we could utter audible words they could hear, "STEP OUT THE CAR SIR"....

We both have families and where'nt about to mess around with 2 white cops around 11pm (we encountered a lot of traffic on the I495 highway, hence the delay in our trip)....

Obeying thier command wasn't an issue as we all know NIGERIANS obey the law if enforced. Moreover, I grew up with a no-nonsense family on both sides with neighbors who would cook for all the kids, depending on whose crib we wher hanging out (trust me guys, it was the same in every part of the country). Every parent spoke in the local dialect and only spoke english to me cos i was hausa/fulani. But guess what?.... I learnt different languages to slide into conversations.....lol... (whose gossiping now...?....lol). Every parent was a baby sitter for the other and no child ever worried about being stuck with "south park" on their Ipad. if they sent 1 child to study, we all had to go or else.....you guys know the rest nah......and of-course, when they allowed us play soccer, number 6 oladejo was the venue for all the neighborhood kids.
That kinda brings me to wonder why these days, i see NIGERIANS both home and abroad raising kids who dont even know what greeting an elder means. Come on Nigerians, is that what our parents raised us to be?....WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT!!!....

How can you give up pronouncing "Nnwayoma"............................................ "Nnjideka"
How can you give up pronouncing "omo to rewa"......................................... " Folajuwon"
How can you give up pronouncing "yarinya mai walkiya.....wayoooo"................... "Bilkisu"

I got carried away for a minute.

So you give up all the above for "am gona gona"...?.una dey fall ma hand.

Anyway....CLICK-CLICK.

They slammed cuffs on both of us .....
Please be adviced that you are not under arrest at the moment, we are only detaining you. Step to the side sir.( those where thier commands)

Whats all this at the hour of the night now?

Re: Police Brutality Around The World by yahamisu: 8:38pm On Aug 30, 2019
I've been welcomed by all my people from kano, housed by a man from kaduna (Yaro), helpd by a man from Jos (Camji) and even defended by a ranking officer from Jos. entertained by a man from Benue(Chief Oche) second to a man from Kogi (Hassan). Helped by a man from Anambra(Uche Nnzewata). Housed By a man from Kwara (Olayiwola), positively adviced by a man from Enugu (Joel). Fed By a man from Ibadan (Rasta of Life). Even had particular fasting periods wher I get fed By the Aworis (Bilkis Aya Ekun) or you want me to start talking about my adventurous relationships starting from the richest neighborhoods to the poorests. from Lagos to Ogun to Ibadan, Ondo, Ekiti, Benin, Delta, Portharcourt, Ebonyi, Abia, Imo, Enugu,Akwa Ibom, Calabar HHMMM...Flown with some, driven crosscountry with some. I dont want to start talking about my friendships from Sokoto all the way to Borno, or Kebbi all the way to Adamawa and Taraba(You all know your selves).So why the HELL cant we all UNITE at HEART as ONE and fix our beloved COUNTRY?

I'ved even had Nigerians Transit Into Nigeria Just to boost a project of mine e.g (Kuti. Ire ooo).
I could Listen to Dan Quiro, just as i could enjoy king Sunny Ade. I could Enjoy Bright Chimeze or Osadebe Just as i could enjoy Eberi Papa 1 (Timaya). So, Why is individual success all we worry about? if we fix ELECTRICITY, we all know what that can do to Nigeria. i trust the marchants and investors from kano, Anambra, Ogun and of course Nationawide. Why are we just sitting and waiting on more lies after lies? WHY!!!

The more passionately we stick to the construct of FIXING our country, the more likely it is to flush all the lazy evil minded rulers who are hell bent on keeping us in darkness" Am talking to everybody here cos we are all guilty......

Anyway, he looked to the officer by his side and said " Mi o ni gba fun Mola yi kowole). We all know the Yorubas Tease the Hausas. same as all other tribes inter-tease OURSELVES. but at that moment i got soooo fummed, i snatched my passport, tickets and walked off in-between them (reigning curses as i walked away). I found my way to the Airline ticket office and just before the lady at the counter could search for a date to shift my flight, they came in a group. Oga wants to see you. I got there and refused to apologise to him, Then i got Detained till 12 midnight (didnt know they had a jail down stairs MM2 sef) time to release me, i couldnt find my phone so i "rake gaaan"....

We ended up going to the police station at Bisam MM1. you guys wont believe i went there to report my phone stolen and i ended up being the one detained Overnight. WHAT THE HELL!!?

To be continued........

Concluding part = mixture of both worlds..

Walking in the streets of Addis Abba felt calm and relaxing cos you only see the police men/women around but they bother nobody (that reminded me of the Night SSS boys tried to oppress me at Pekas Opebi.

I drive around the streets of Johannesburg and not worry about anything cos i know they are 10111 away but in those times i remember being forcefully tasked by Police officers in the streets of kano, Uyo, Lagos, Abuja....e.t.c (Dont get me wrong, i have had negative experiences in all this countries but the laws and processes, Protected me to the later). I wonder how one has to be afraid of talking to a Senator (Senator Abbo comes to mind)...

MY PEOPLE ARE DYING AND THE POLICE ARE USED FOR POLITICIANS GUARDS.

I've spent time with Kenyan Military men and in comparism with my time with Nigerian Military/Police men, the story is totally different.

Ive hung out with russians and europeans in various degrees, Chinese business men , Africans of different types and kinds, ofcourse Americans, only the NIGERIAN story is different.

But check this out guys.....

how can a police man be well cared for when some people hand 2kg of rice to the masses while having bullion vans pull up in thier house just before election(TINUBU)?

how can the military man be well equipped to defend the territories of Nigeria my beloved country when a governor pays salaries when he likes (deducts at will), he's seen on video collecting bribe and still wins an election (GANDUJE)

how can people have good roads in the Entire Eatern states with people like Rochas and Obiano as the governor?

How can people walk the streets safely as we used to sometime ago in Rumou Ola with WIKE as governor?

how can school kids have free transportation when Flamboyant senator's garage competes with US superstars? (Dino Melaye).

STRUGGLE KNOWS NO COLOR and POVERTY KNOWS NO TRIBE !!!

Anyway, the police in America searched us thoroughly, couldn't find anything but towed the car to punish us. we took a cab to greyhound. So i hopped on a bus to Raleigh NC, finished my trip with Uber. bought the car, drove back to Richmond, got my friend's car out and we drove back to Baltimore.

As for the Nigerian Police. they detained me behind the counter and waited till about 2:00 am. with no phone to call anyone and no one even knowing my whereabouts, they thought they could oppress me.

Police officer : What do you have with you?
me: Wallet, passport, tickets, and some cash

Police : oya count it and bring it here
me : I obliged

police : what are you wearing?
Me : Nike sneakers, Nike shirt/shorts, Nike hat and Cartier wrist watch.

Police officer : oya pull your shirt, shoes, watch and bring ya cap.
me : (i blew up cos this guy is about to take full advantage of me) HELL NO!!!. YOU BETTER GO BRING OUT YOUR RIFFLE AND SHOOT ME COS THAT AINT NEVER HAPPENING ON EARTH

Police officer : e be like say this one done craze ooo.... na me you dey rake for?

We went back and forth until he starting murmuring to him self. (oho dai...na you sabi). it was amazing the speed at which they rushed me to court early in the morning cos i was already falling sick. Vomiting due to the stench i could not control (Mind you this is a police station right next to MM1)..............................COMMMMOOOONNNN!!!!

I was charged with all sorts of crime. from punching and beating up a security officer to hospitalizing him... Eish, it took the efforts of fellow Nigerians From Jos (Yilji E.S.Q and Camji) to my Kaduna sister (Hajara) To my Ondo/Ekiti Brother (KUTI) to my Imo brother (Frank). It took a collective effort of Nigerians to save me from that mess cos UNITED we STAND.

Thank you all.

lets talk to ourselves.

I wish i share this same optimism about Nigeria with you but sadly my hope and wish for a united, prosperous, successful and workable Nigeria keeps waning everyday due to the recent happenings that keep occurring and reoccurring everyday.......It seems as if there's no hope again and Nigeria cannot be salvage from this impending doom!!!

Imagine a sitting governor(katsina state) and a top military personnel posing for a picture with "bandits" after a supposed "negotiation"

Imagine a Governor(kano state) canvassing for votes with support from the presidency after been caught on tape collecting bribes and kickbacks for a contract

Imagine a president going on International media to tag the youths of his country "lazy"

Imagine a sitting governor sharing kerosene, cups of rice, salt, onion, etc, as a means of enticing electorates in his state to vote him in.

Imagine someone convicted for various crimes outside Nigeria subtly campaigning to become the next president of Nigeria.

Imagine a sitting president ignoring court motions and injuctions

All these occurrences and more leaves me with the question "Is there still hope for Nigeria"
Re: Police Brutality Around The World by yahamisu: 1:48pm On Sep 01, 2019
@preshob

I dont know how old you are but to be honest with you, as close back as the 80s, Nigerians where more UNITED than the NIGERIA of today.

They have successfully weaponized poverty and the people are swayed to vote for the wrong reasons.

I can go on and on but theres nothing I can add to supercede the current narrative on all grounds (Nigerians know this from all ethnic, religious and statute background) This we all know.

So, I say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

The madness has to stop!!!

I dont have to be in my Country and power goes off even at big hotels. You voice out and they tell you "welcome to Nigeria sir".... you freaking kidding me?
