Police Brutality: Nollywood Actress Gets Her 'Revenge'
April Joju Muse might just be holding a thanksgiving service in church on Sunday.
The Nollywood actress who was pepper sprayed on her way to work by an unruly Police officer on Tuesday, cut her own pound of flesh.
Apart from being grateful that it was a pepper spray can he aimed at her and not a gun, she is happy to get compensation for the broken window of her car.
She shared her joy and relief on Facebook;
"Two reasons I'm grateful. The gas could av bn a gun, the man could av bn lynched. Either way, a life could av bn lost. And the situation was savaged before it could be taken advantage of..
"But then i ask, if i wasnt able to get a video clip, would it still have been in my favour going by the way the "mopol" tried to turn the table around? So many have fallen victims and have been wasted,forgotten.
"Honestly, you my Friends made it happen. We won today,as a team, we exposed the bad eggs soiling the effort of the few good guys in the Nigerian police force that mean well. In good there is bad ,and in bad there is good, but we can make the police force av a greater number of good guys. We won today through individual and collective efforts, we will keep winning. My eyes??? I hope she gets better...
"To those asking, I wasn't "compensated" to "drop case". (The Mopol paid 10k naira for the glass and other damages as I had my hustle to attend to, and that's all) I didn't meet with the Commissioner of Police as widely speculated."
Another good news from all of this is that the police officer who assaulted the actress, has been sacked.
The state police spokesperson, Chike Oti said the state police commissioner, Edgal Imohimi, after seeing the disturbing video, ordered the arrest of the policeman.
After investigation, the officer was found guilty and has been dismissed from the force.
The former cop will be arraigned in court today, Wednesday,December 13, 2017.
