Mr Macaroni condemns Toyin Abraham for arresting X user over cyberbullying

Nigerian comedian and activist Mr Macaroni has publicly condemned Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham’s decision to arrest a  social media user for cyberbullying.

This comes after an X user identified as Jeffery, called out the actress for using police to arrest his mother after accusing him of cyberbullying.

He wrote; “Toyin_abraham1 you sent police to pick up my mom at home. Lol Said I bullied you. Where did i bully you? Me of all people?”

Reacting to the post, Macaroni criticized the use of connections within the government to detain citizens without due process.

The internet sensation also emphasized the importance of seeking justice through legal channels, such as going to court.

He 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?”
