He said it didn’t end there, the physical assault continued at the police station as they used the back of their weapons to hit him.
Funny Face could not hold back his tears as he narrated his experience in an Instagram video.
“I was arrested on a highway at the Millennium City road. I had just gotten down from the car to buy some medicine from the pharmacy. The moment I got down the police car just turned to my side and I was beaten mercilessly with handcuffs,” he broke down in tears.
“What did I do wrong, I’m not a bad person. I am just fighting for my Children Ella and Bella. I was dragged by the police and beaten at the Police Station but you know what great leaders slept in cells. This police brutality must end.” He added.
