Davido’s Hype Man Faulted By Police For Taking Law Into His Hands Over Alleged Pregnancy Towards Davido
About a week ago, two women had accused Davido of allegedly getting one of them pregnant.
That video immediately went viral with a lot of people confused as to what to believe.
Davido subsequently offered N1m to anyone who could fish out the ladies.
Davido then went on to vow to deal with his false accusers. It didn’t take long before the women in the video came out to deny their claims.
According to them, it was a mere prank and they apologised for it. Davido, however, kept to his words as a video was shared online on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, of the two women on handcuffs after getting arrested. Since the release of that video, there have been mixed reactions on Twitter about the scenario.
Davido’s hype man, known as Special Spesh, had posted a video on Instagram showing the two women, Helen and Susan, handcuffed and sitting on a chair in a living room.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, has faulted Edward Ijah, the sidekick of popular musician, Davido, for handcuffing and parading the two women who accused Davido of impregnating one of them.
Spesh could be heard telling one of the ladies to lift up her head or get a slap in the face.
He subsequently told them they were in trouble for “deformation (sic) of character.”
Davido also posted a smiley in the comment section, laughing over the treatment meted out to the Ladies.
Reacting to the development, the police spokesman said it was wrong of Davido and his team to take the law into their own hands.
Elkana said a citizen has the right to arrest another person and hand over to the police immediately.
He said no citizen had the right to parade another citizen, Punch reports.
Elkana noted that a popular rich man, Onye Eze, was arrested earlier in the year for arresting a popular blogger, Blessing Okoro, who had taken photos of his house, claiming ownership of the property.
Elkana said, “Even if someone defamed your character, you are to hand over the person to the police immediately but to parade them is wrong. The person being paraded has the right to sue. Private citizens have no right to parade another person.
“Not all policemen even have the power to parade suspects.
“You cannot be a judge in your own case. If he feels aggrieved, he should lodge a complaint and not go to effect an arrest. He cannot conclude the guilt of another person. There must be an investigation and only a court can pronounce them guilty.”
