British-Ghanaian musician, Fuse ODG has shared a video to call out the UK Metropolitan Police over what he describes as “racial profiling”.
According to Fuse ODG, the incident happened on 28th February 2023 in Brixtonx.
“I was dragged out of my car and handcuffed in the middle of the street in Brixton with no warning or explanation. After the incident, I spent 6 hours in A & E due to how tightly they clamped the cuffs on me…(excruciating pain!), as well as suffering neck and back pain for the following weeks”, he narrated in a post.
The Grammy award-winning artiste added that he has suffered frequent brutality from UK police.
“This isn’t the first time this has happened to me or @mrhackett1. At one point, it was almost a weekly occurrence”, he expressed his frustration
He indicated that he has filed a formal complaint with the police and called for a change in the mentality of Africans to stand up for justice.
“That said, we are not holding our breaths for justice from this system. The real battle is internal…the real battle is won when we don’t let them break our confidence and we maintain our identity and dignity”.
