Nigerian music artiste, Olamide Adedeji has warned that Nigerians try and avoid confrontations when dealing with the police, saying ‘citizens should be very careful and sensitive when they are faced with any issue involving the police due to the incessant extra-judicial killings by security operatives’.
Olamide sounded the warning via his verified Twitter handle on Friday, stressing that safeguarding one’s life was most important in such situations.
The rapper who decried the incessant killing of innocent people by the police, admonished them to act better when addressing issues with the people, as killing innocent citizens would only add to the problems in their lives.
“What is really going on? What is the way forward with this killing and police brutality? It’s increasing everyday and I feel ashamed because I know we all can do better
“And for you, oga police, no matter what you are going through just know taking an innocent life won’t solve your problem but add to your burden. We all can do better
“Everyone out there please try and be safe. there’s nothing more important in life than keeping yourself alive.
“I think it’s better you follow them to station than get into unnecessary argument that might lead to violence. We all can do better,” he wrote.
