Debo Adedayo, a comedian and activist from Nigeria known as Mr. Macaroni, has described his traumatic encounter with the Nigerian Police.

Remember that he was detained in February 2021 as part of the #OccupyLekkiTollGate demonstration to prevent the reopening of the toll plaza in Lagos.

The Lekki toll gate was shut down following the #EndSARS protest in October 2020 as a result of the shooting of nonviolent protesters who gathered there.

Together with other protesters, he was detained by police, who then transported them to the station while stripping them of all their clothing.

He further described how the security guards brutally attacked him in an effort to “teach him a lesson” for questioning the existing quo.

In an interview, the content creator claimed that the incident increased his rage and gave him the confidence to challenge others in positions of authority, including the governor.

Additionally, Mr. Macaroni claimed that while he was in that circumstance, the police reprimanded him for insulting Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the state governor.

He claimed that the officers’ threat and reference of the governor gave him the impression that they had the support of the Lagos governor in their treatment of him.

He did, however, emphasize his mother’s efforts to get him to scale back his activity. He added that after witnessing such inhumane treatment, he felt bad for the country, but he had grown stronger as a result of the experience.

The actor claimed that Mr. Macaroni and Debo are different from him due of the character’s personalities.

He went on to say that if he ever witnessed someone being treated unfairly, he would confront the perpetrators.

Regarding his plans to enter politics, Mr. Macaroni stated that he does not currently have any plans to do so.
