Popular Nigerian online skit maker, Mr Macaroni, has taken to his verified Twitter account to reveal the ordeal he faced when he was arrested by the Police during one of the #EndSARS protests.
Following the October 20, 2020 shootings at the Lekki Tollgate, many people kicked against the recommendation for reopening the tollgate.
The funnyman was among those who participated in the protest against the reopening of the toll gate. He was subsequently picked up among 40 other protesters and arrested for defying the Lagos State directive against the protest.
The protesters have since been granted N100,000 bail each and arraigned on charges bordering on flouting the COVID-19 protocol on public gatherings and ‘breaking an order not to protest’.
However, the skit maker stated that while he was in custody, policemen took turns to beat him because he is ‘Mr Macaroni’.
In a series of tweets, he further noted that he would take the case to court.
He wrote, “That very day, I swore never to stop using my platform to call out the evil that the Police do. If they can do that to someone people know, imagine what they do to hundreds of thousands of unknown Nigerians.
