Police beat up Baba Fryo, musician narrates experience on hospital bed

Popular musician, Friday Igwe popularly called ‘Baba Fryo’ has threatened to sue
the Nigeria Police for serious injuries sustained from an assault
by five policemen in Lagos.

policemen at Iyana Ishasi, a suburb of Lagos some days ago when he tried
to appeal to them to stop manhandling two young ladies.

girls had rebuffed entreaties by two policemen to follow them to an
unknown destination. This led to them seeking assistance from five other colleagues to pounce on these girls, hitting them viciously with guns, batons and

When he heard the commotion from his room in a friend’s hotel, he begged the seven policemen to stop beating the
girls. Unfortunately, one of them turned and gave him some hot slaps.
Within seconds, four others joined in beating him, leaving him with fractures. The matter was reported to the DPO of a nearby police station,who sympathised with him. But Fryo said he was taken aback when no mention was made of who would bear the cost of his treatment.
He vowed that he would sue the police if nothing was done about the
matter, noting that a scan had confirmed that he sustained a fracture in
one of his legs.
