You dey play with odeshi? – Benin boys stand their ground as police fire gunshot at them (Video)

A video which surfaced on social media captured an interesting exchange between men of the Edo State Police command and Benin youths.

There was an incident that led to unrest on the streets of Benin and police were called to disperse the crowd that gathered.

When the officers arrived, they asked the young boys to leave but there was resistance, so they decided to scare them off with gunshots.

When a shot was fired allegedly into the air around the crowd, the youths still refused to leave or run away.

Rather they screamed some local slangs to let the police know that they are not scared of guns.

CorrectNG reported weeks ago that a young man has raised an alarm over the incessant arrest of youths by police in the Mabushi/Jahi area of the Federal Capital Territory.

He claimed that in the past one week, young men have been arrested for either keeping dreadlocks or dying their hair.

The Abuja resident known as @Yucee_ took to Twitter to share a video of a police station filled with different people that had been arrested for the same reason.

According to him, they called the Police Complaints line but nothing was done about the worrisome situation.

He said about 100 people had already been detained as at Thursday night, 15th of December 2022.

He called on the police authorities to intervene because they were being held against their will without being informed of their crime or offence.

He wrote; β€œThe Nigerian police Mabushi division have been extorting people living around mabushi / Jahi axis for the past one week for just Tinting their hair or being on dread locks πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. As at yesterday they had over 100 persons on this count and demanded they pay 10,000 each

Without saying what their crime was at the station. @Princemoye1 , the Nigerian complaint number was informed of what is happening at the diving but they did nothing about it.”
