A video that has gone viral on Instagram has captured a dancer believed to be part of Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade’s dancing crew being captured and beating by men believed to be Nigerian police.
In the said video which was posted by Yemi Alade herself, the gentleman who was in a red dress was being dragged by the supposed police men with him begging for help and also questioning why he was being captured.
Another very important detail in the video was the person who was taking the video asking what it is the guy had done to get the men drag him and treat him in that manner. Another gentleman who is also alleged to have caused the whole brouhaha was also captured threatening to smash and break the phone of the person taking the video.

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.
