Instagram celebrity, Mr. Macaroni has released a new video detailing the horrific ordeal he and other protesters went through over the weekend when they were arrested for the roles they played in the Lekki Toll Gate protest.
The popular comedian said he going to the hospital to have a thorough examination of his body because he was really beaten and his smartphones smashed by the officers.
He called out the government for their action towards protesters.
He said: “The government is responsible for protection. So, let me ask, you had over 200 policemen out there yesterday, and you want to tell me you could not guarantee a peaceful protest if there was going to be one? It shows that you guys are irresponsible, all of you are irresponsible.”
He said he’s certain the police would have killed protesters if word hadn’t already gotten out that they had arrested some people and were detaining them.
He thanked the lawyers and everyone who played a part in getting him released and said he’ll speak further after getting medical attention.
