The spokesperson of the Delta state Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, has lambasted Singer, Paul Okoye, over his comment about police operatives who enter the car of motorists.
It would be recalled that on Sunday, September 5, Paul took to his Insta-story to state that any policeman who enters the car of a motorist is a criminal or a kidnapper.
“The only reason a policeman will stop you and enter your car is just because they are looking for an avenue to negotiate for a crime you did not commit.
As long as a police man enters my car and tells me to drive…He’s a kidnapper or a criminal.”
Meanwhile, this statement didn’t sit well with the Delta Police PRO, DSP Edafe, as he fires back at the singer in a tweet shared on Twitter.
He wrote, “Celebrities with no sense”
Paul Okoye’s post came following the arrest of Nigerian rapper, Panshak Zamani, popularly known as Ice Prince for allegedly abducting and assaulting a police officer in Lekki, Lagos.
The Police had on Friday, September 2, arraigned Ice Prince on three counts, which were bordering on assault, obstruction, and abduction of a policeman. All charges to which the rapper had pleaded not guilty.
However, Magistrate Taiwo Oyaniyi subsequently granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 and he is also to provide the court with two responsible sureties. The Magistrate ordered that he be remanded in the correctional center until he fulfills his bail condition. He then adjourned further proceedings in the case till September 7.
