Recall that Paul and a Delta State police spokesman, Bright Edafe had an argument in September when the singer’s colleague Ice prince was arrested by the police.
Ice Prince was arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command, for driving without license plates and allegedly kidnaping a police officer who had entered the singer’s vehicle.
Paul Okoye who defended his colleague in an Instagram post said that the only reason a policeman should stop a driver and enter his car is that the police officer is a criminal or a kidnapper who wants to negotiate for a bribe.
Paul wrote, “The only reason a policeman will stop you and enter your car is just that they are looking for an avenue to negotiate for a crime you did not commit. As long as a policeman enters my car and tells me to drive. He’s a criminal or a kidnapper.”
Reacting to Paul’s comment, the police spokesman wrote; “Celebrities with no sense,”
