“They were harassing and calling him all sort of names… criminal, yahoo boy and all, when i asked what is happening here?”
“I told the police to stop calling him a criminal , the young man said he’s not a criminal, that he’s a footballer, I got pissed, brought out my phone and started making a video, the police were uncomfortable, that’s was how they decided to let him go”
Paul said the footballer later sent him a DM with a verified Instagram account, to show appreciation for saving him harassment from police.
