Foelyjoe, a rising Nigerian artist, has spoken out about his harrowing ordeal at the hands of Nigerian police officers.
Foelyjoe, whose real name is Aiyetran Folagbade Segun, claims that police officers attacked him and extorted N2,500 from him, only to return N1,000 and tell him to fend for himself.
He claimed the event occurred on Wednesday morning when he returned from a visit to someone in Sangotedo, Lagos state.
