“I was harassed by police officers and accused of carrying a charm” – Actor Akah Nnani shares his encounter with ‘SWAT’ in Lagos (video)


Popular Nollywood actor, Akah Nnani, has shared an unpleasant an encounter with some men of the Nigerian police force.

The thespian in a video he shared on social media detailing his ordeal said it started after the car he was in, was flagged down by police officers along Ring Road Bridge.


According to him, around 20 police officers were stationed on the bridge, claiming to be conducting a stop-and-search operation with a shuttle bus rather than an actual police vehicle.

He claimed that one of the cops who approached his car cocked his gun and pointed it at him and the driver for no apparent reason.

Nnani said the officers who had a SWAT inscription on their outfit—the replacement of the disbanded police unit SARS—asked them to drive to a dark alley, away from the bridge and other road users.

He added that they insisted on searching him after he refused, and suspected him of possessing a charm after seeing his house key, which was adorned with a native drum.

Sharing the video on Instagram, he wrote, “I’m so pissed off!! I had a nasty experience yesterday night. The Nigerian Police Force @nigeriapoliceforce needs to look into this and stop the menace going on from 9pm every night on the Ring road bridge linking Osbourne from 3rd mainland.”
