Police Men Take Praiz To Their Station

Although the singer has since been released, his arrest further fuelled the ongoing #EndSARS campaign. The singer has yet to break his silence on the incident, especially after the police had said Praiz’ vehicle was on top speed and he was asked to pull over because of that.Saturday Beats reached out to the singer’smanager, Wale Bello, but he claimed the policemen stopped the singer because they thought he was a Yahoo boy.“He asked the policemen to identify themselves if they were men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad or normal policemen. Then one of the policemen began to yell, ‘he is even recording us, he is one of them.’ He said that Praiz was being mischievous and he was being usedby enemies of the Nigeria Police to discredit them.At that point, Praiz introduced himself as an artiste . One of them recognised him but the other two refused to listen and insisted that they must take him to the police station. At that point, Praiz did not know if they were policemen or SARS men.While they were taking him to the police station, he called us; I was at the beach already and it was from there we started making calls. When he got to the station, they seized his iPhone 7.“By the time we got there, a police officer, Aley Giwa, had already sorted the issue. There was also another senior police officer, Etim Godwin, who was very courteous to us, at Ajah Police station.When we got there, Godwin acted like a truly professional police officer who knew what he was doing. After he heard what transpired, he simply told Praiz to sign a document and leave but the three officers that took him to the police station were obviously angry that he was set free.
