The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, has faulted Davido and his hypeman, Edward Ijah popularly known as Special Spesh for handcuffing and parading the two women who accused Davido of impregnating one of them.
The video showed the two ladies, simply identified as Helen and Susan, in handcuffs sitting on a chair in a living room. Spesh could be heard telling one of the ladies to lift up her head or get a slap in the face. He subsequently told them they were in trouble for “deformation (sic) of character.” Davido also posted a smiley in the comment section, laughing over the treatment meted out to the women.
Reacting to the girls being paraded in handcuffs, Bala stated that it was a wrong move and the girls have the right to sue because a private citizen has no right under the law to parade a suspect.
In his words;
Even if someone defamed your character, you are to hand over the person to the police immediately but to parade them is wrong. The person being paraded has the right to sue. Private citizens have no right to parade another person. Not all policemen even have the power to parade suspects.
You cannot be a judge in your own case. If he feels aggrieved, he should lodge a complaint and not go to effect an arrest. He cannot conclude the guilt of another person. There must be an investigation and only a court can pronounce them guilty.
Davido has since let the ladies go after the video of their “arrest” went viral. He has also not released any additional comment nor has anyone on his team as at the time of this publication.
What do you think? Did Davido do too much? Did the girls deserve to be paraded? Share your thoughts on the comment section below.
