"After the incident at lamgbasa police dibusion AJAH........ I was invited by police officer @aleeygiwa to the lagos state PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICE of the nigerian police commmand at ODUDUWA Street, off ODUDUWA crescent ikeja GRA yesterday...... I met with d most SANE.. Well spoken, and understanding policemen and women... I was so shocked at how NEAT and organised a NIGERIAN police office could be... There i met the 1st in command KEN OKORO, the 2 IC ALIU GIWA, ASP matilda, and BALOGUN.. the former ADC to d police commissioner... These police officer were furious about the NEGATIVE images thier fellow policemen are painting to the police... And i was clearly shown (with all honesty) ALL and HOW theyve been trying and working to clean this image... NOW it is CLEAR that there are bad eggs amongst them... And the DPO of LAMGBASA police division Ajah was summoned and unfortunately he wasnt even aware of the incident on Saturday... And the policemen who caused all this have been summoned for identification and are goimg to face whatever punishment comes to them (ehich cannot be disclosed here)...... Im happy at how i was treated at ikeja PRO division. And let me use this medium to pass thier message to nigerians.... KNOW YOUR RIGHT. Both HUMAN and TRAFFIC laws.... DO NOT let an unlawful policeman ride you... And avoid breaking the law too.... IF any nigerian should be or is harrassed... Kindly take the complaints to THE OFFICE OF THE NIGERIAN POLICE COMMMAND.... PUBLIC RELATIONS DIVISION at ODUDUWA Street in ikeja GRA....... They are SANE and well organised and are ready to do whatever it takes to clear the image of the nigerian police...... BLESSINGS TO US ALL..THANX "

2Shotz making his illegal detainment publicized using social media was able to get the attention of the Police officials. The rapper who owns T-shirt line called Beard Gang is of the lucky few who have gotten some form of justice for being mistreated by the Nigerian Police.
