Nigerian comedian and actor, Adebowale Adedayo, popularly
known as Mr Macaroni, has urged fellow celebrities to seek redress in court if
they feel defamed by online trolls rather than use the police to “illegally”
arrest or detain anyone.

 

He claimed that he had been defamed on several occasions by
alleged trolls of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, but never took
justice into his own hands.

 

He warned that there was “serious danger” in using the
police to “illegally detain citizens.”

 

The movie star urged his colleagues to stop using their
friends in government to “illegally detain citizens.”

 

On his X handle, Mr Macaroni wrote: “If anyone insults you
or defames your character, go to court and seek justice.

 

“APC trolls insult me and tell so many Lies against my
person. I have never for once used the police to illegally arrest or detain
anyone and Never will I.

 

“There is serious danger in using the police to illegally
detain citizens.

 

“I hope those of you supporting this abuse of power won’t
cry foul when you or your loved ones are the victims.

 

“To be clear, this is not to support Online bullying and
harassment. I strongly condemn it and believe that those involved should be
made to face the consequences of their actions.

 

“I am a victim myself and I know how mentally damaging it
is.

 

“But go to court and seek justice like the rest of us do.

“Don’t use your friends in government to illegally detain
citizens. It may favor you now, but think about tomorrow when you no longer
have that power or the closeness to that power.

 

“It might not be you, it might be someone you care about.
What will become of us if everyone takes law into their own hands?”

 

Mr Macaroni’s advice is coming on the heels of reports of
Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham arresting an X user who allegedly wished her
child death.
