Paul Okoye of the defunct music duo – Psquare, has expressed his surprise to see a Nigerian footballer he saved from police harassment some months ago, playing against Barcelona in Champions League.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Paul narrated how he saved the footballer, Olayinka Peter from the police in Lekki Phase one gate after they accused him of being a fraudster because he was on dread.
“They were harassing and calling him all sort of names… criminal, yahoo boy and all, when i asked what is happening here?”
The singer said the man told the officers that he’s a footballer but they didn’t believe him and told him that all Yahoo boys claim to be footballers or musicians.
Paul said he was pissed, so he brought out his phone and started filming the whole incident. The police officers became uncomfortable and let the young man go.
“I told the police to stop calling him a criminal , the young man said he’s not a criminal, that he’s a footballer, I got pissed, brought out my phone and started making a video, the police were uncomfortable, that’s was how they decided to let him go”
Paul said the footballer later sent him a DM with a verified Instagram account, to show appreciation for saving him harassment from police.
The singer said he was pleasantly surprised on November 5th when he was watching a football match on TV and saw the same man he saved months ago on his screen.
“yesterday I saw this same young man playing against Barcelona in champions league Barcelona vs slavia Prague azin ehh!!”
“I was like this guy looks familiar, had to type his name on I.g @olayinka_peter …. I was very proud of what I did that night ,… then I screamed again …. God punish some illiterate Nigerian police”the singer added.
