Through his verified Twitter account, Mr. Macaroni criticizes the Nigerian police force in response to Seun Kuti’s assault on a police officer in Lagos.
Mr. Macaroni expressed his dissatisfaction with the police, saying that while they respond quickly to pursue justice for one of their own who has been harmed, they always act in the opposite way when it comes to harassing residents.
Mr Macaroni tweeted; “I love how the Nigerian Police is quickly seeking Justice for one of theirs who was assaulted. I hope such speed is also applied when Citizens are being harassed and brutalized by the Nigerian Police. While I totally condemn assault on Police officers, I also condemn any form of maltreatment against Seun Kuti. As the police attempt to fight for the rights of one of theirs, Seun Kuti’s rights must also be respected. The Law should be allowed to take its course.
I hope the Nigerian Police understand how the people also feel when they assault, brutalize, humiliate and oppress us. All we want is for things to be done rightly. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. I hope the Police and the Citizens understand this.”
Speaking on equity in society, Mr. Macaroni asserted that it should not be the police versus the populace but rather Good versus Evil.
In his tweet, he came to the conclusion that, in order to create a better community, the police should always promote virtue and abhor evil.
He added; “It should be Good against Evil. Not the Police Vs Citizens because we all are capable of both good and evil. If we want a better society, we must encourage good and shun evil.”
