A Nigerian artiste manager, Yung Miraboi, has claimed that he was harassed by men of the Nigeria Police Force. Yung Miraboi, an artist manager, PR and businessman, has made public his unsavoury experience with the men of the Nigerian Police Force, describing some of them as illiterates.
The young Nigerian entertainment PR man said he was arrested by some Nigerian policemen while walking on the road and was wrongly accused of being an internet fraudster, otherwise known as Yahoo boys.
According to him, the Policemen asked for a permission to search his phone and they went through his email and found his credit alert statement from Fidelity Bank which the Policemen accused him of having forged.
“How could I have forged bank statement which came from the Bank to my email? I knew it was just a front to charge me or just to label me as a Yahoo Yahoo boy. At the end of the day, they succeeded in extracting some money from me.
“I had to pay because they were determined to hang a charge of any sort on me. At the same time, I was in a hurry to meet an appointment, so, I had to just let peace reign. Some Nigerian policemen are sheer illiterates as you can see. How could they say an email of a bank statement from your bank is a scam perpetrated by you. Honestly, many of them are not well informed,” he recounted with a note of bitterness.
After the incident, the Abia State-born PR manager posted on his Twitter timeline “We all have to stop corruption and not to blame the Nigerian President.” Yung Miraboi Mark was born Miracle Kelechi Chike and he has been involved in the success stories of some notable artistes.
Recently, he caused quite a stir when he called out Nigerian artiste, Zoro and his management for owing some amount of money since 2017.
