Police PRO Faults Davido’s Sidekick For Parading Ladies Over Pregnancy Hoax
The Lagos State Police Command has faulted Davido’s hype man, Spesh for the arrest and parading of two girls who had accused the superstar of impregnating one of them.
In a statement released by the Force Spokesperson, Bala Elkana, it was disclosed that private citizens only have right to arrest another citizen and hand them over to the Police.
He also added that not even all Police officers have the rights to parade suspects, except the persons have been tried in a Court.
He 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.”
It will be recalled that two girls reportedly accused Davido of impregnating one of them in a video that circulated on the social media. It was gathered that on hearing about the girls’ action had vowed to get them arrested and “deal” with them.
