A young Nigerian singer, Trishawnary has taken to social media to share his ordeal at the hands of police officers despite using a photo of Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi as his phone screensaver while he was traveling.
He alerted the police spokesperson of his action via Twitter and hoped that he would not be harassed or extorted by officers at checkpoints.
However, the plan did not go as intended because their vehicle was still flagged down in Delta state and the police officers that stopped them collected N5000.
According to the artiste with username @trishawnary on Twitter, the security personnel claimed that the car’s chasis number did not match.
He shared; “Sir @Princemoye1 I dey travel tomorrow by road. I have used your picture as screen saver hoping that your boys will not descend on me and take me to somewhere I no know
