Popular Nigerian singer, Bez just adds up to the number of celebrities who have had unpleasant experience with the Police.

The singer disclosed that he was harassed by the force men somewhere around Ikota over his failure to bribe them.

According to him , due to the fact that he didn't give them money, they accused him of carrying about a fake insurance document.

Although after much argument with the police men, he was later freed by them. While the drama was ongoing, the singer was accompanied by wife and two month old baby.

He said: “Police showed me shege in Okota today, of all the documents in my life…they said I faked insurance…INSURANCE!! I said I didn't have cash on me… The guy just vexed. Got me out of the car and pushed me under the rain into the station. He said to his wicked partners in yoruba..majeko lagun.. Which means I will make them sweat (my wife quickly translated) Meanwhile they saw baby in the car oh.. Dem no send.. One woman in mufti was shouting on me and saying they will embarrass me here!"

“'They had guns so I just chilled.. They now brought out paper and told me to write a statement that I was in possession of a fake document. The paper was labeled Witness/Accused. I asked if they we’re arresting me.. They sais not yet. Am I a witness? No.. Accused? NO. I said based on the fact that I am none of the above.. I can’t write any statement; also it says the person has to write willingly. …and no one is under any obligation to say anything. He now asked me if he put a gun to my head, I said no.. He now said I should start writing.”

“I said Oga.. I am following what this paper says.. I am not writing anything.  Meanwhile, wife and baby still in car making calls lol. Finally a friend came to check up on my wife and baby…he suggested giving the police something… My wife said lai lai!! Someone after verifying my documents called the police guys and told them to let me go, see vexing!”

“Musician’ no wan drop Abi? They forced me again to write statement… I refused… That police woman..hm..Vexed!! They aha let me go. My wife had even called the insurance people, verified the docs, went online.. The records were there. All this happened simply because they could. They had guns, I didn't… I still don’t..lol… God bless Nigeria.”
