“4 days in Nigeria & I have already been profiled as a criminal by the Nigeria police force because I have braids” — Washington DC Police officer laments

A police officer who works in Washington DC, visited Nigeria for the holidays, and he’s revealed how he was profiled a criminal by the Nigerian Police Force because of his braids.

 

@wearethe2030 shared a photo of himself and wrote: “4 days in Nigeria & I have already been profiled as a criminal by the Nigeria police force. They profile people based on looks. Male with dreads, braids and so on. I work for the Washington DC as a police officer and I have braids. Enough of the profiling! @TunjiDisu1 @aleeygiwa”

Explaining how it happened, he wrote: “Riding back to my hotel on Toyin street, Allen, Ikeja, with Taxify, and the police had stopped me twice on the same road, ordered me to step out of the vehicle asking what I do for a living. My police credentials saved me from being a victim.”
