Detaining citizens with police is dangerous — Mr Macaroni to celebs

By Kachi Ekile

Popular comedian and actor Mr Macaroni has advised Nigerian celebrities against using the police to detain online trolls.

Speaking in a post shared on X, Mr Macaroni, whose real name is Adebowale Adedayo, told his colleagues in the entertainment industry to go to court rather than detain those who troll them.

Using himself as an example, he disclosed that despite being constantly trolled by APC supporters, he has never resorted to using the police to “illegally” detain citizens.

“If anyone insults you or defames your character, go to court and seek justice. APC trolls insult me and tell so many Lies against my person. I have never for once used the police to illegally arrest or detain anyone and Never will I.

“There is serious danger in using the police to illegally detain citizens. I hope those of you supporting this abuse of power won’t cry foul when you or your loved ones are the victims.

“To be clear, this is not to support Online bullying and harassment. I strongly condemn it and believe that those involved should be made to face the consequences of their actions.

“I am a victim myself and I know how mentally damaging it is. But go to court and seek justice like the rest of us do.

“Don’t use your friends in government to illegally detain citizens. It may favor you now, but think about tomorrow when you no longer have that power or the closeness to that power.

“It might not be you, it might be someone you care about. What will become of us if everyone takes law into their own hands?”
