The power of Nigerian celebs cannot be overemphasised when it comes lending their voices to an injustice. A number of celebs have been very vocal about the ills perpetrated by Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) officials following several reports of their brutality.
Nigerian singer Simi has also been blocked by Yomi Shogunle, the head of Police Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit.
She made the confirmation just after rapper Rugged Man posted that the officer had blocked him.
Ruggedman, who is also a police ambassador, had gone on social media to ask Nigerians to take to the streets after the killing of one Kolade Johnson by SARS operatives in Lagos, and in the process tagged Shogunle to get a response from him.
However, the artiste was blocked on Twitter by the police officer.
Ruggedman, who posted a photo indicating that he had been blocked by Shogunle, wrote,
“Look who just blocked me because I said I am waiting on his tweet about an innocent man killed by a SARS officer. What a shame. If it’s a dumb tweet or act he will be fast to comment. We bring you a serious case and you keep mute and block people. What a disgrace to @PoliceNG.”
While responding to Rugged Man’s post, Simi also confirmed that the Police officer had blocked her too.
