Nigerian actor and comedian, Adebowale Adedayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni, has challenged celebrities in the country to jettison the tendency to intimidate and detain, using the police and other connections over social media trolls.

He urged his fellow celebrities to seek legal action if they feel defamed by online trolls, instead of taking law into their hands.

He submitted that the method could encourage abuse of power and reminded celebrities that legal approach remains the way to go.

He revealed that he has equally been abused online but that he has always sort legal redress as opposed to use of police and other unconstitutional means.

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

“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 a 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 favour 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?”

His advice comes after reports of Toyin Abraham arresting an X user who allegedly wished her family harm, highlighting the importance of seeking justice through the proper channels.
