Nigerian professional dancer Korra Obidi has shared a video showing a police officer assaulting her in Victoria Island Lagos.
She said the officer sat on her bonnet and when he saw that she was recording him, he turned aggressive and began assaulting her. The incident happened on Etim Inyang in VI.
She said the officer, whose name was given as Olorunisola Ismail, forcefully gained access into her car in an attempt to grab her phone. He slapped her when she wouldn’t let go of the phone and also grabbed her wrist in an attempt to get to the phone. He eventually got hold of the phone and smashed it, then continued shouting at her.
In the video posted online, witnesses can be heard asking Korra to stop making a video of the officer to avoid getting him angry. The officer is also heard telling the dancer, “I’m stubborn than you” as he assaulted her.
