Social media comedian Debo Adebayo, also known as Mr. Macaroni, took to his official Twitter account to reveal what happened after he was arrested by the men of the Nigerian Police force during the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest in Lagos state.
The #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest, was staged by youths in Lagos, as they were against the decision of the judicial panel to hand over the toll gate back to LCC for repairs and begin operations without granting justice to the victims of the October 20 incidents at the toll gate. October 20, will forever be remembered by the youths as it was a horrible night where there was an alleged shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protesters by the Nigerian army.
Mr. Macaroni, was among the youths who were arrested and put in a "Black Maria" during #OccupyLekkiTollGate, as he said, he was taken to Adeniji police station where he was beaten by the police officers.
According to Mr. Macaroni, one of the police officers who took turns in beating him, said he would have killed him, but his death will stair up reactions from his fans.
"When I was at Adeniji police station, the police officers took turns to beat me up. They were even calling themselves to come and beat ‘Mr Macaroni’
They said in my life when next I hear police, I will run! One said if not that people would ask about me, he would have killed me." Mr. Macaroni wrote.
