#OccupyLekkiTollgate protest: Police officers attempt to arrest two Nigerian ladies for speaking against the police (Watch Video)_

Nigerian Police officers attempts to arrest two Nigerian ladies for speaking against the police.

According to a Twitter user, She shared a video and also narrated how she and her friend almost got arrested in Lagos for Insulting the Police during their conversation of the Lekki Protest.

On getting to their bus top, the police officer attempted to harass the ladies as he claimed that the ladies were insulting the police.

Read what she wrote below;

‘This happened today, a police officer said we were insulting him earlier this evening because we were talking about the protests and how @mrmacaronii and others have been treated badly by the @PoliceNG.
We didn’t even realize he was on the same bus till my friend got down and he Held her and said we would have to come down and follow him to the station for just talking (since when did they take away our freedom of speech?) This man called other police officers standing at the Maryland busstop and they all came around to further harass us.
He was going to break my phone so I stopped recording, nd we literally had 2 apologize for talking. In Nigeria, we had to apologize for just talking about the #EndSARS and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria protest, we were not even actively involved o. May God strengthen all Nigerians.
I’m sorry I didn’t mention earlier that the bystanders were actually the ones who started begging all the police officers on our behalf and also stopped them from taking the 3 of us to the cell tonight. Also they were more than 10 officers there..he wasn’t alone.”
