Bala Elkana, the Police Public Relations Officer for Lagos state has revealed that the two sisters involved in Davido’s pregnancy prank, can sue Edward Ijah popularly known as Special Spesh for unlawfully parading them in handcuffs.
Helen and Susan who made pregnancy allegations against Davido last week, later claimed it was a prank. This did not go down well with Davido and his management team as Special Spesh located the girls and posted an Instagram video of them in handcuffs.
In the video, Special Spesh could be heard barking orders at the girls to look at the camera or risk getting a slap on the face.
Davido reacted by dropping laughing emojis in the comment section of the video.
However, the Police have condemned this act saying Spesh ought to report to the Police and not take law into his hands, while speaking with The Punch.
Bala said it was not the job of a citizen to arrest his fellow citizen.
“Even if someone defamed your character, you are to hand over the person to the police immediately but to parade them is wrong. The person being paraded has the right to sue. Private citizens have no right to parade another person.
“Not all policemen even have the power to parade suspects.
“You cannot be a judge in your own case. If he feels aggrieved, he should lodge a complaint and not go to effect an arrest. He cannot conclude the guilt of another person. There must be an investigation and only a court can pronounce them guilty.” said the Lagos state PPRO

The PPRO cited the instance of Onye Eze whose house was posted by popular Instagram star, Blessing Okoro, laying claims of ownership of the house. Onye Eze filed a report against her with the Police, who in turn arrested her.
