Charly Boy slumped for the camera – Police | WATCH



The Nigerian Police has accused veteran entertainer Charles “Charly Boy” Oputa of being over-dramatic during Tuesday’s #ResumeOrResign protest.

Charly Boy was captured on video, falling on the chair he was sitting on after police officers teargassed him and 9 other protesters demanding that President Buhari, who has been away from the country for almost 100 days for medical vacation, resumes or resigns.

Reacting to the development, the Force’s PRO Jimoh Moshood, when he appeared on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily said miscreants took over the protest and police had to get involved to prevent disorder.

“We can see over-dramatisation by the leader of the protest (Charly Boy) who was sitting on a chair and decided to fall down because the camera was coming to his side,” Jimoh said.

    Stupid people! The leaders of this country are so shamelessly corrupt. Buhari should resume or resign. Why should the country be paying and catering to a ghost president?

      On another note, Igbos are still the face of this protest which will not benefit us directly. And interesting enough, online warriors have not come to attack as usual. If it’s Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra, they will come with all their arsenals of insults. Left for me, I prefer Charly Boy, Jim Iyke and co stay off this matter. Let the Yorubas fight their battles themselves. After all, if Osibanjo becomes President, they will get another northerner to replace him as Vice-president. The North will say it is Igbos that instigated their removal from power, and will continue to see Igbos as their enemies and the same Yoruba will align with them. So why the stress? But oops! Even the human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has said Buhari has done no wrong.

      I thank God my people are not cowards. And have always proven themselves to be patriotic.

      P.S. Where is 2face, by the way?

      I am well focused. And I am not being tribalistic here. I am only stating the Nigeria fact.

      I really wish you told those throwing jabs at the Igbos because of Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra to focus. And not talking when it’s convenient for you.

      What goal pls? Osibanjo’s presidency? And you think that is the solution Nigeria need? You are just recalling for the political bokoharam.

      If you think the Hausa fulani will leave power for Yoruba just like that, then you are in for a long thing. Watch it, if Buhari survives till 2019, they will substitute him with another northerner, while Osibanjo remains as Vice. And you still think Nigeria belongs to all of us?

      Our goal should be restructure Nigeria, or we go our separate ways. The Hausa fulani is colonizing us with this current arrangement. Enough is enough!

      Leave diamond’s tribalism alone. Did he/she lie? Would it be so egregious if the westerners/yorubas acknowledge this fact and try to make amends. We are talking about one of the three major tribes continuously being marginalized by a) the Hausa-Fulani who want all the power and 2) the Yorubas who get some power sometimes but remain dependent on Hausa-Fulani crumbs/say-so. What would happen if we tackle the other minor tribes or the source of Nigeria’s wealth-the niger delta? Nigeria is a mess. We must restructure to move forward.

      Seeking proper governance by capable citizens and seeking redress are NOT mutually exclusive. As a matter of fact, seeking redress falls under seeking proper governance. Let us wake up.

    In a sane country,this man should be resign or face arrest. So he can read Charlie’s mind fa?

    @Diamond your tribalism saddens me. The issue at hand has nothing to do with yourba, Igbo or Hausa. Or are you convincing yourself, you own Osibanjo because you are a Yoruba man.

      Chidi, you might want to go back and read Diamond’s comments again..

    @Diamond, is it justified for Charly boy to slump because he is an Igbo man. Or as an Igbo man, he should be denied freedom of speech. Your comment is so emotionless. I want the President to return healthy and my desire has nothing to do with my tribe. Pls focus and do not influence others into your ONE YORUBA TEAM.

    We’re talking about the need to have an ACTUAL president, the deviation of the Nigerian police from ensuring safety to insuring the government against the people and you’re on about how the protest is being run by only igbos and why they should quit until the yorubas join because the hausa are blah blah blah…. Left for me you failed to make sense shaa

      You sound like one who doesn’t live in Nigeria or has been away in a loo…….ong while. I think you need to visit home to be conscious of the happenings in your country. Then, my comment will make sense to you.
