Mr Macaroni: Insecurity has worsened under Sanwo-Olu

Adebowale Adedayo, popularly known as Mr. Macaroni, a well-known comedian, has lamented the degree of insecurity in Lagos State under the current governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

 

In response to the shooting death of Bolanle Raheem, a female lawyer, by a police officer in the Ajah neighborhood of Lagos state on Christmas Day, Mr. Macaroni stated his concern with the rise in crime in the state.

The governor was criticized in the comedy for being powerless to stop the state’s rampant oppression, cruelty, and extrajudicial killings.

Mr. Macaroni criticized the governor for being powerless to stop the state’s rampant oppression, cruelty, and extrajudicial killings.

He tweeted, “Dear Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu, the level of insecurity, oppression, brutality and extra-judicial killings since you became governor has worsened. You don’t control the police? Ok. But you are the chief security officer of the state. What are you doing about it sir?”

 

 

Reacting to the incident earlier via his Twitter handle, the Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the officer responsible for the killing and others have been taken into custody.

He said, “Unfortunate and avoidable incident that was. The ASP that shot and two others with him have since been taken into custody. They are to be moved to the SCID for further investigation.

The Lagos State Police Command extends its condolences to the Barrister Bolanle Raheem’s family, friends, and colleagues. Since yesterday, the family and the Nigerian Bar Association have been in contact with the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Abiodun Alabi, who has assured them firmly that justice will unquestionably prevail.

However, Macaroni’s response indicated that the Police PRO’s assertion had not been well received by him.

He responded, “If it was a civilian who the police suspected of a crime, even before they were found guilty, you will give us their names, even snap pictures or film recordings after beating them up. Continue to guard yours. I sincerely hope that one day all of our oppressors will be held accountable for their crimes against humanity,” he continued.
