The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundey has reacted to BBNaija star, Phyna allegedly accusing a policeman of filming her during a verbal altercation.
Recall in a viral video Phyna was seen recording a police officer as she alighted from her car after she was ordered to stop on the highway in Lagos for a stop-and-search operation.
She proceeded to accuse the officer of recording her with his phone on her social media page.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin speaking on the case via his X page on Tuesday, asserted that the policeman was merely recording her for violating a traffic law with his phone.
He said; “If you were in my shoes, somebody carries phone on your face, you’ll get angry. You’ll get angry! – a Nigerian 🙄
“You guys can’t even take what you dish out. A police officer uses his phone to record you, not randomly, but while you’re breaking a traffic rule and you’re all worked up about it, asking which law empowers him to rightfully get evidence. 🤔 You’re unusual.
“But law does not matter when you record police officers in the line of duty, sometimes just to agitate them and quickly scream harassment”.
