Multiple award-winning producer, Idowu Ogunade, popularly known by his stage moniker, ID Cabasa, has recounted how he was assaulted by a policeman.

The producer explained that he was sharing a cab with a friend when an arrogant man driving a Range Rover nearly crashed their car.

The taxi driver tried to talk with the Range Rover driver but he instead called on a police officer to prevail upon the situation.

The policeman went ahead to slap the producer who was trying to settle the argument between the two drivers amicably.

Upon discovering that ID Cabasa was a popular person, the officer started apologising.

The producer, who felt pained by the situation, explained that the assault could have gotten worse had the police not discovered he was popular.

He wrote:

I had a very unfortunate incident this night which really shows how rotten we’ve become as a people! I can categorically say that Nigerians are the problem not Nigeria! The Country (land mass) is not the problem but the Nation (People) are d problem. Okay this night a young fellow Nigerian guy driving a Range Rover sport drove rough nearly hitting d UBER I was in on my way back home with a friend! The UBER guy was so scared and was trying to talk to d range guy but typical rich man-poor man tussle, the range guy overtook us and asked police guys guarding a club near bay lounge to slap the driver, I came down to have a conversation with d Range guy and in all sincerity we were having a gentleman’s discussion before the police guy he spoke to earlier started pushing me and guarding me from talking to d guy!In a nutshell d police guy SLAPPED me!!!! Then people gathered, recognized me and bam he started begging!!! Sigh! How did we come to lose our humanity for vanity? Why give gun to a person that is emotionally unbalanced and unintelligent? I wept inside my heart because it would have been a different case of chancing if it was not me. Sigh 😔
