According to Mr Macaroni, the police took them to Adeniyi axis of Lagos where they were beaten and stripped n***d.
“If the word was not out that people were already being arrested, people would have died. They were telling us that ‘we’ll shoot you and nothing will happen. If it was night, all of una for don die” he said.
“So, we’re in a serious shame but it’s not to silence our voices. They cannot continue to oppress. Those of us that have the voice will continue to talk,” the comedian added.
“Have we gotten justice for want happened last year? Is opening the tollgate the next line of action?”
The entertainer went on to speak about claims that he collected money from Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president.
“I don’t believe in curses. But for anyone saying l collect money from Atiku or whoever it is, that’s their business in the first place.”
“Two, if l didn’t collect money from anybody, you’ll not make it for the rest of your life. Your children will suffer. I know some believe that. But those that know me understand that I have been speaking for myself and people around me right from secondary school days.” He said.
