“So I was going back home from work at exactly 1am this morning and this police men, I don’t even know what this ones are called, stopped the car I was in and asked us to open the car for a search which we did and he searched everywhere, came to where I was sitting and tried to forcefully open the middle compartment, I said “ oga use the bottom Abeg don’t force it.”
“Then this police man who I assumed was already high on drug or something started shouting that y must I tell him that , I was first shocked and trying to understand where the sudden shout came from and he immediately started saying , you must be mad and all the curses on his mouth . It was 1am in the morning , and the only thing I could do was try to reach out to my phone while he was still shouting . Immediately he saw my phone , he forcefully tried to take it from me , I quickly put the phone under my skirt and the police put his hands right under my skirt and took the phone.
I tried to reach out to my other phone , he held me sooo tight and broke 1 of my nails , I started bleeding , I got down from the car and held his shirt , then 2 more came out , started dragging me everywhere .3 men on 1 woman wow @nigerianpolice u can do better .
