It was so disappointing for us here at Naijauto as we read through the ugly experience that was shared on Tuesday 17th September 2019, by the Nigerian veteran music producer, ID Cabasa on his official Instagram page.
Olumide Ogunade a.k.a ID Cabasa took time to explain all that transpired between him, his UBER driver, one obviously rich man, and a Nigerian police officer.
In the story, ID Cabasa revealed how he was unfortunately slapped by the Nigerian police officer before being later recognized as a celebrity and afterwards lots of apologies were made to him for that reason.
The veteran music producer, ID Cabasa is now one of the celebrities abused by the Nigerian police
>>> What kind of place that we are living in? Ibadan police officer smashes taxi driver's windscreen for refusing to give ₦100 bribe
Below is the original narration of ID Cabasa’s story just as he posted it on Instagram;
“I had a very unfortunate incident this night which really shows how rotten we’ve become as a people!
I can categorically say that Nigerians are the problem not Nigeria! The Country (land mass) is not the problem but the Nation (People) are d problem.
Okay this night a young fellow Nigerian guy driving a Range Rover sport drove rough nearly hitting d UBER I was in on my way back home with a friend!
The UBER guy was so scared and was trying to talk to d range guy but typical rich man-poor man tussle, the range guy overtook us and asked police guys guarding a club near bay lounge to slap the driver, I came down to have a conversation with d Range guy and in all sincerity we were having a gentleman’s discussion before the police guy he spoke to earlier started pushing me and guarding me from talking to d guy!
In a nutshell d police guy SLAPPED me!!!!
Then people gathered, recognized me and bam he started begging!!!
How did we come to lose our humanity for vanity?
Why give gun to a person that is emotionally unbalanced and unintelligent?
I wept inside my heart because it would have been a different case of chancing if it was not me.
And below is the original Instagram post:
ID Cabasa isn’t the first Nigerian celebrity to reveal such harassment and mistreatment by Nigerian police officers. The likes of Ikechukwu and CDQ have also had similar ugly experiences in the past which they revealed as well as confirmed it to be true.
We just hope that the Government at one point takes a strict step to check and correct some of these ridiculous behaviours of some Nigerian police officers.
