Following the viral picture of ex- BBNaija housemate, Kiddwaya walking with four escorts as appeared on social media on Wednesday, Nigerians have come out to attack Nigeria Police Force.
Kiddwaya was spotted being surrounded by four armed police officers.
He captioned post; “Oya. It’s round 2. Let’s move out.”
This did not go down well with Nigerians who called out the Police for giving such security to a celebrity while insecurity heightens in many parts of the country.
However, some hailed the billionaire’s son, explaining the level of kidnapping in the country was enough reason for him to have such security.
This is coming at a time when new acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba ordered the withdrawal of senior police officers from EFCC.
Here are some comments:
@ValarMuurghulis tweeted: “I thought they said the new IG withdrew all policemen attached to VIPs, everything is just audio in this Nigeria.”
