Award-winning singer, Omawumi has come out to reveal how she was disrespected at a police checkpoint during a ‘stop and search’.

The singer angrily took to her twitter page to express how she felt and adviced the Nigerian police and everyone to treat people with respect and urged them to always strive to do better.

She wrote saying;

Quote
“I’m a proud Nigerian that louds the effort of the NPF(Nigeria police force) but today I was a victim of uniformed officers that abused their office.

If you want to stop and search.. do it respectfully. I was disrespected today and if I didn’t put my foot down or I didn’t know my rights, I would have ended up seriously hurt.

We can do better by ourselves.. in any position we find ourselves. You owe it to your citizens to be/do better…”

I know your type. You think because you are a celebrity is an avenue to talk to police the way you like. You must have made shakara to the police all on name that you are omawunmi.
