The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, has berated reality TV star Otabor Josephina, popularly called Phyna, over her altercation with officers in the state.
The Big Brother Naija season 7 winner said that officers filmed her, and she demanded that they delete the footage.
In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote, “Police, bring out the phone and film me… Me, sef, bring out my phone to go live.
“Some unfortunate people were busy encouraging the police to deal with me. Na win, I win, I no kilI person because of hate; y’all don’t even know when to have sense. I made sure he deleted it.
“He said taking pictures and videos of the person they stopped is against the law. I have never heard of that. Phyna made sure he deleted it!”
On his X page on Tuesday, Hundeyin responded to the tweet, writing, “If you were in my shoes and somebody carried a phone on your face, you’d get angry. You’ll get angry! a Nigerian.
“You guys can’t even take what you dish out. A police officer uses his phone to record you, not randomly, but while you’re breaking a traffic rule and you’ve all worked up about it, asking which law empowers him to rightfully get evidence. You’re unusual.
“But the law does not matter when you record police officers in the line of duty, sometimes just to agitate them and quickly scream harassment.”
