Nigerian journalist and Public Relations specialist, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo, has taken the police brutality activism a step further as she promised as she has shared some really graphic photos.
The photos are those of her artist @wealth9ja, that he obtained from the hands of some evidently merciless Ghanian policemen.
Wealth9ja who hails from Delta State Nigeria can be seen in the photos obviously brutalized and in pains.
Dr. Olunloyo in her post gave details of how most of this wickedness took place. Read her post below:
WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES of my artist @iamwealth9ja brutalized by #Ghanapolice in 2018. Extorted 3 times by #PoliceNG SARS in Badore, Ajah and the 4th time SARS was lectured by me as I was in that car this time to witness this habit AND IT HAPPENED, STOPPED AGAIN.
I vow to protect my artist, a poor Delta young man who left Agbor village to make it in Lagos working at a car dealership and doing music on the side. I don’t charge him anything for my artist development and PR services as he’s my chosen 2020 mentoree.
It has been a long week so far for police brutality. In North America, things have changed with #blacklivesmatter because people stood up to police. Why are Africans still scared? My grandfather Police Chief Samuel Akinyemi was the FIRST DEPUTY IGP @nigeriapoliceforce and retired in 1955 to join politics.
The IGP was a white British man. He became the Chief Whip of the Western State🇳🇬 House of Assembly. He gave birth to my mother in 1940 in #ItaFaji Lagos barracks. I will make him proud by standing up to police against bad officers in the different African police forces.
Ghana Police profiled him, followed him to a music video set and then harassed and beat him even chanting “your own NPF molest you so what’s the big deal?” Look at Wealth9ja’s scared face?
He could NOT report police to their superiors in a foreign land.
He simply left.
The big deal for those officers is that it’s now two years and I want a detailed investigation and put an end to this. We hear about Ghana Police and Nigerians living over there being frustrated, our embassy quarters demolished, our youth running there for work, a country whose people lived illegally here for years before late Prez Shagari deported them and they were weaving bags to travel called #Ghanamustgo.
The Ghanaians are our neighbors & many our friends but their police must be reformed. @iamwealth9ja did not know he could report to our embassy over there. He stayed silent. #EndAfricanpolicebrutality
#africanlivesmatter Kingsley Chinedu Otalor COVERED most of his 2018 bruises with tattoos even making him more of a cop target😠🇳🇬🇬🇭
