Comedienne shares story of disappointment in police, army

Comedienne Lepacious Bose has no jokes for us as she shares a story about negligence from men of the uniform

 

In every force or government institution, there will always be the disturbing bend of the good and bad eggs. Even though the motto of the Nigeria Police is "the police is your friend", if you take it to heart for this story, the joke is on you.

Lepacious Bose took to Instagram to share a story about how negligence and fear of false accusation saw a life slip away.

She said:

"I try not to talk about Nigeria anymore because its too heartbreaking and most times it seems pointless.... I read stuff online and I pray silently and move on but this story is too sad. Should our priorities be saving the victim or arresting the good Samaritan?Just this morning I read of a guy billed to travel to the USA tomorrow and was stabbed to death, his sister insists he would have been saved if people were not afraid of being arrested if they take him to the hospital. What kind of law endangers the life of innocent victims because of the inability of the police to do proper investigation? IILS AIDA said: The last 1 hour,I have cried more than I have in ages. My baby brother and I were are on our way to Redemption Camp for the Holy Ghost Service when we encountered a bit of traffic on the 3rd Mainland Bridge. I thought it strange considering the time but hey...We then happened upon a man who we thought was dead in the middle of the road but as our car drove by, I noticed he was still breathing.  We stopped immediately. Another vehicle stopped too. There was no question about lifting the guy because we would have ended up in prison and charged with hit and run.  My brother trekked on Third Mainland Bridge to try to find an ambulance while myself and the other guy that stopped called the contact numbers of the police. At this time, I was directing the traffic on 3rd Mainland Bridge away from the body of the guy in the middle of the road till he was moved to the pavement. 4 Military men passed on "Okadas" and said "Eeeyah" and moved on. The police passed by with sirens and shook their heads. They didn't stop. A LASTMA official on a bike stopped. He didn't have a vehicle so he called his bosses who told him "they" were not coming. I was stunned. Then came a policeman with the new vehicles given by Ambode and he called his bosses who instructed him not to carry the guy in the "new" car. It wasn't to be stained with blood. I broke down in tears at this point. The reality was that the new police car was worth more than the Nigerian life. This was my Nigeria. This was my Lagos. We eventually stopped ambulance of the Gbagada General Hospital and the driver agreed"

The Nigerian rapper also suffered once at the hands of the police, see Pulse Tv video below for the full gist.
