Nigerian police forced their way into a house through the ceiling when the inhabitants of the house refused to open the door for them.
The police were captured on video by the tenants making their way through the ceiling when they refused to open the door for them to do a “routine check”.
According to the tenant, he alongside his friend was meant to open the door when they heard the knock. They, however, changed their minds when the police threatened to lob teargas in his home.
This morning my friend and I heard a knock on the door and they said it’s the police. We wanted to open the door but they weren’t patient and were threatening us with tear gases, then we said we were not going to open it.
The officers then proceeded to access into the house through the ceiling. He decided to call for help from his neighbours. It is the neighbours who made sure that the tenant and his friend were not arrested by the irate police officers.
That’s how we saw some of them trying to gain access through our ceiling. We started shouting for help then neighbours gathered then they descended from the ceiling and still tried to arrest us for not opening the door.
They were prevented by our neighbours from arresting us. They claimed they came on routine check.
