Nollywood actress gets compensation from policeman who assaulted her
Nollywood actress April Joju Muse who recently shared a video of how a police officer attacked her, has revealed that she was compensated with ten thousand naira to fix her car screen.
The Lagos state Police Force had earlier released a statement saying the officer has since been dismissed, and April has now confirmed that he also paid for the glass he broke.
In a post on her Facebook page, she wrote;
The Police officer then decided to attack her with pepper spray to shut her up. He put his hand into her car and she tried to wind up her glass to stop him. He then angrily broke it and went to to spray her face as she warned that his actions were being recorded. Watch the video and see what she wrote about her life being in danger, below.
Two reasons I’m grateful. The gas could av bn a gun, the man could av bn lynched. Either way, a life could av bn lost. And the situation was savaged before it could be taken advantage of..
But then i ask, if i wasnt able to get a video clip, would it still have been in my favour going by the way the “mopol” tried to turn the table around? So many have fallen victim and have been wasted, forgotten.
Honestly, you my Friends made it happen. We won today, as a team, we exposed the bad eggs soiling the effort of the few good guys in the Nigerian police force that mean well. In good there is bad ,and in bad there is good, but we can make the police force av a greater number of good guys. We won today through individual and collective efforts, we will keep winning. My eyes??? I hope she gets better.
To those asking, I wasn’t “compensated” to “drop case”. (The Mopol paid 10k naira for the glass as I had my hustle to attend to, and that’s all) I didn’t meet with the Commissioner of Police as widely speculated. I’m grateful guys. #ReformNigerianPolice #EndPoliceBrutality
