Chukwudike Damian Akuwudike popularly known as Comedian IamDikeh has lamented his recent encounter with the Nigerian Police around Ajah axis of Lagos State.
The Skit maker who is popular for featuring as Mama Chinedu in his comedy skits shared the ugly incidence on his Instagram page.
Revealing how he was manhandled, threatened and extorted by men of the Nigeria Police Force, Dikeh wrote: “Nigerian Police literally took me out from their checkpoint in Chevron Drive to somewhere in Ajah and threatened me with a gun to give them N250,000 and i told them I don’t have until they said they gonna kill me here and nothing will happen. I had to send N50,000 to save my life. This just happened now somewhere around Ajah. I did nothing to them. All my car papers are complete. They still insisted to steal from me. I’m afraid of being a citizen of this country. I literally just begged for my life just now.”
In an earlier interview Comedian Dikeh had hinted on why he thinks social media is a way through which youths can earn a living in Nigeria.
He said: “Social media is God sent. It was a gift from God to everyone who had nothing to do. Since I have been on social media, it has been a major source of income for me. There are so many things you can do on social media to make a good living for yourself. You can have an online store where you sell whatever you want to sell, be a brand influencer, or just showcase your talents for people to see. Social media is a big platform for people to make a living in Nigeria.”
