Ufuoma Ejenobor Viciously Beaten By Policemen

On the 29th Of October actress Ufuoma Ejenobor was viciously beaten by policemen in Lagos.

Not long after the incident she posted the following on her Facebook:

“hmmmm……i was assaulted by policemen attached to the convoy of the Lagos state house of Assembly speaker (Adeyemi Ikuforiji) on the 29th of oct. they hit my car and drove on without regarding their act. when i started recording it, they got angry, assaulted me and took my blackberry phone…which they still have till date.”

I am running really late with this news since it occurred on the 29th of October and Ufuoma tweeted about it not long after. The truth is I wasn’t going to post it at all. I have only now decided to post it after seeing the news posted on various blogs online and seeing the disgusting comments made, basically along the lines of she deserved what she got because of how she was behaving. I think that people were shocked because Ufuoma was looking wild eyed, shouting and screaming as one does not expect a celebrity to behave. I saw comments that people would have expected it from a razz girl like Tonto Dikeh, but they did not expect such from Ufuoma Ejenobor.

Yes, when we see Ufuoma in the public capacity, as that is all most of us shall ever know of her she is the epitome of class and grace, she is always well polished and well spoken. Even in her movies we have not seen her acting any role that is similar to the way she behaved in the tape. What has all this got to do with the fact that she was angry about having just been beaten? Fed up of the injustice that beats you down every time you leave the house. Fed up of the thieves and looters thinking that they are above of the average person. Why wouldn’t she be angry and screaming and shouting after she had just been beaten and robbed in the street? Would you be the epitome of class and grace after enduring such public humiliation?

The other thing that must be noted is that this incident happened in Nigeria. Nigeria people. Whether you want to admit it or not, patriotism or no patriotism, the country is lawless and run by crooks. You can love or hate that I have pointed it out but as Ufuoma said in the video “it is the simple truth.” Acting classy and timid in Nigeria will get you nowhere. Read my lips NOWHERE! Nowhere at all. Behaving the way that she behaved is what people understand. Noone will take notice of what you have to say unless you are making a big noise. If she was acting all timid and quiet that is how they would have ushered her to wherever they wanted to usher her to and dealt with her severely, perhaps we may not be even seeing her today.

I have only been there twice myself but in my classy and timid capacity everybody wanted to take advantage. I didn’t want to cuss anyone out because I didn’t want to be rude. Rude is what you have to be sometimes. My friend on the other hand had other ideas and the way she expressed them made me cringe. I was shocked but surprisingly her “razz” and very blunt behaviour was the only way to get the point across that she would not stand to be taken advantage of and people seemed to respect her for it. So call it razz, call it what you want but it is what it is and it is the language that Nigerians understand.

I have heard people say that Ufuoma is making it up. They say that she is trying to extort money from the police and that she planned it? Do you guys see her face? It is just me or does it look puffy and bruised? Hmmmm I suppose she did this to herself all for the grand plan of trying to sue the police? This is police brutality plain and simple. It is as though Nigerians have got so used to bowing down to power and turning a blind eye that it has come to the stage that you will blame a woman for being beaten down by men. What is the world coming to?

People say that we did not see the beating. Why did we see everything else BUT the beating. Who do you think was filming it? Think well. They only wanted the public to see Ufuoma acting out, to see the gentle Chief Inspector of police calming down the mad woman. How very convenient that the beating was edited out. It is very obvious that she has been beaten. She is screaming and crying, “They beat me, they took my phone.” Did you once hear the guy ask her what she was talking about or refute her claims? Did he even ask her who beat her? NO! Why would he when he knows full well exactly what happened, when everyone there watching too knew what happened, he would look like a big fool.

The Lagos State Of Assembly is now planning to sue her. Can you imagine? This is how these people truly feel that they have wings. Not only will they beat and rob you but then they will have the nerve to turn around and try and sue you on top. You can see what imbeciles are being dealt with by their pathetic public statement release. See what the Chief of Staff of the Assembly Mr. Segun Olusesi had to say:

She wanted to be beaten by the way she behaved but we were lucky and matured enough, especially because we were in a state of mourning and that is why we didn’t give it to her.

Does this sound like a man that should be Chief of anything? I can understand him talking to his friends like a jobless fool but to release a public statement saying this is ludicrous as far as I am concerned. This is what I mean when I say the country is lawless. Just look how people in positions of authority are behaving.

I hope Ufuoma gets the justice that she deserves. These people behave like vigilantes and they need to be called to order. I’m rooting for her.

  1. This barbaric behavior has to stop in that country. I am ready to donate to any legal fund she set's up to see that justice is done in this situation. I don't see any reason why those who are supposed to serve the people are now so vicious against their subjects that they are ready to canibalize them in the name of societal oppression.

    • I don't know if she has any legal fund set up, but that certainly is a kind offer. I'm sure if she does she will reach out.

      Its like the Stanford Prison Experiment. Some people with power let it go to their heads in an extreme way.

  2. My gurl dont play….

    I am suprised that people would watch her get beaten though, i understand people dont want to get beaten as well but still something should have been done…

    Useless leaders should be removed, clearly they have bad intentions for nigeria…lagos can suck sometimes

    • I don't know how many policemen there were but I cannot imagine anyone intervening. You can be killed in broad daylight and no one will do a damn thing. Even to take you to the hospital will be drama because you don't know how blame could be attributed to you.

  3. I was even surprised at pple's comment. She has the right to behave that way in Nigeria especially lagos,and pls dont call tonto razz next time.

  4. Hand of GOD says:

    Nobody beat this husband snatching bitch of a person. She is so getto and all this is —- is KARMA. Tell her to remember how she was ranting like an animal in another woman's house. How she lived and sexed another woman's husband for years even though the woman took her like her little sister. Your punishment for breaking another person's home has not even started bitch… you are going to wallow in your vomit Ejenabor

    • To me it is obvious that she has been beaten and the chief of police did not refute her claims. I see you must have something personal against Ufuoma. I don't know her personally but from what I have seen she does not appear to be "ghetto."

      • Hand of GOD says:

        You are a Nollywood blogger and you are not aware that Ufoma was sleeping with Peace Fibresema's husband. This was an open secret and yes I have something personal against people who sleep with other people's husbands. Karma is biting her in bum. She can sue all she wants but by the time police bring out a dossier on her, this case will quietly die down. Forget all this gra gra, this girl has no credibility.

        • @ Hand of God,

          I am really suprised that a human being in this age and time can talk without focus… Nollywood is saying A, you are talking B, doesn't it show how senseless you are? The issue is dat Ufy was beaten, ur talking about her fucking sum other woman's man. Why are you taking panadol extra for another woman's migraine? When would people ever change? Like "Nollywood" rightly said, seems u have personal beef with her, which you should go and sort out face2face with her (thats if she will not skin u alive; coward) and stop destroying the trend of this blog.

          OGA "hand of God" the Judge, one question for you as u r crucifying Ufy, can you vouch dat in ur life, (if u r female), you have never fucked any lady's BOYFRIEND, FIANCÉ or HUSBAND??? (or if male, any man's GIRLFRIEND, FIANCÉE or WIFE)

          Ask your self that question and den shove ur mouth into ur arse…Afterall, thats were ur money is.

          Ehen, @ Nollywood, I support Charles, i would do d appeal fund. I would even get Transnational Advocate Networks involved sef, cos as far as that Chief made the statement that she behaved in such a way that she was begging for beating, it shows he cannot be a leader cos he would support woman beating "when they beg for it". Naija is just a waste of mental effort if the rulers think this way…

    I am not only shocked but lost for words with her behaviour – granted the naija police were wrong as they always are (i assume) – Aint no way in hell i will let them push me to act so uncouth on camera. Lil girls in naija probably look to her as a role model – cos truth be told she is a good actress with good potential – but this video has shocked the hell out of – I never in my wildest dream imagined this for one second. It was like a combination of BIPOLAR and CRACK ADDICT.

  6. ShockedbyRazzness says:

    Are all NOllywood actresses this uncouth and razz. I am just curious. I really would like to know the backgrounds of these girls – u must be brought up in the ghetto to be able to even act like this

  7. ShockedbyRazzness says:

    So with all this behaviour DID SHE GET HER MESSAGE ACROSS – WAS EVERYTHING SOLVED FOR HER.??? I dont live in naija so i am just wondering.

  8. some people out there and posting on this topic are sick,and surely need help. i hope you will be put in the same situation Ufoma was in and then we can see how polished you are. i rest my case.

  9. KeepitReal says:

    Mtchewwww!!!!Why are people so fake?! Abegi who are you to pass judgement on her? This is a woman who has just spoken up for millions of people who have been abused by the police in Nigeria. It took a lot of balls/courage for her to damn the consequences and stand up for hereself. I am so proud of her. Enough is Enough!!!

    • It would be so easy to let them get away with it as that is what they normally do and if you are not connected or in the public eye you don't have much chance of justice unfortunately. However because Ufuoma is in the public eye she at least has the opportunity to bring to light a very important issue. The police should not be above the law.

  10. Oh i see she spoke for millions wiht her razzness huh, I guess in naija the only way to get your point across is to act UNCIVILISED – that makes sense.

    2 wrongs do make a right/

    No wonder there will be forever be CIVIL UNREST in nigeria because clearly 99% of the nation has the same mentality – scream and shout your point across to be heard. Lets all act like lunatics and the nation will be a better place.

    ALL HAIL UFUOMA WHO SPOKE FOR MILLIONS OF NIGERIANS – EXCELLENT EXAMPLE FOR THE YOUNG.

    Nice Look.

  11. MY NEW NICKNAME FOR UFUOMA

    UFUOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMAAAAAAA "I DIE FIGHTING" – NIGERIAS BEST ROLE MODEL

  12. Patricia Kayden says:

    So what was the conclusion? Has she sought to sue the police officers who did this to her?

    Unfortunately, police brutality is a worldwide problem — not just Nigerian. You can ask African Americans about that (remember Rodney King?).

    Good luck to Ms. Ejenobor. Hope she gets the justice that she deserves. The publicity she has generated will hopefully make the police think twice before beating people up for nothing.

    • I think that the point still remains. The police are not above the law, and although they have been acting that way for some time. It is about time that they knew their place.

  13. @ Nolly please fashi the fake a$$ people we have on here. It would be nice to see how they would handle the situation if they were in her shoes. Who knows maybe they would turn the other cheek.

  14. OOOOk..WELL i DIDN'T SEE HER HER BEATEN WHAT I SAW WAS AN ACCIDENT WHICH CAUSE HER RADIATOR DAMAGE I ALSO SAW HER VIDEO TAPING WITH HER CAM AND ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION I NOTICE THAT HER CAR DOOR WAS SHOVED INTO HER….i KNOW SHE CARRIED ON TO THE POINT WHERE i GELT THAT ANY MINUTE SHE WOULD HAVE A HEART ATTACK WITH HER RANTING AND RAVING…HOWEVER THROUGH THE SERIOUSNESS OF IT ALL i FIND THE HUMOR…WHAT COP GETS ON THE PHONE AND TALK TO SOMEONE'S MOTHER ASKING THEM TO PLEASE TALK TO THEIR DAUGHTER..LOL..THAT IS DARN FUNNY IT IS VERY COMICAL…WITH THE WAY SHE WAS CARRYING ON IF SHE WAS HER IN AMERICA SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN TASE, COPS WOULD HAVE USED A TASSER ON HER TO CALM HER DOWN…WELL i HOPE SHE GET HER ISSUES TAKEN CAUSE NO ONE DESERVE TO BE BEATEN CERTAINLY NOT BY THE PEOPLE SET IN PLACE TO PROTECT THEM

    • LOL AT THIS COMMENT… IF SHE WAS IN AMERICA SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN TASSERD! BUSH MAN/WOMAN! IF IT WAS IN AMERICA NO SENSIBLE LAW ABIDING PUBLIC OFFICERS WOULD HAVE HIT HER CAR IN THE FIRST INSTANCE! ALL THESE YAHOO YAHOO PEOPLE COMING HERE TO TALK OUT OF THEIR ARSE LIKE THEY'VE EVER BEEN TO ANY AIRPORT TALKLESS OF ON A PLANE! MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN POWER IN NAIJA ARE UNCIVILISED, ILLITERATES WHO ARE ILL-EXPOSED! WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE, HUMANS WOULD REACT IN A WAY THAT MAY BE DEEMED ''RAZZ''. WHAT INJUSTICE!

      • KeepitReal says:

        Please tell them o

      • I agree with you she would not have been tasered. Since when will a bunch of American police beat down and rob a woman in broad daylight? Even with Rodney King they did it because they thought noone could see. Nigerian police are shameless.

        What American Police department… Even the world renowned corrupt LAPD would release a statement saying "from the way that she was behaving she wanted to be beaten"? Come on now Nigerian Police are something else altogether.

        The other thing is if you are confronted with these vigilante criminals that call themselves police how else are you going to communicate with them if you don't get razz and speak the language that they understand?

    • Max they didn't show any beating because it was THEM filming it! The whole point of releasing the footage was to edit out all the parts that made them look bad and to make her look like a mad woman.

      Think about it. How would she be crying and screaming "they beat me. They stole my phone" and the guy didn't ask who or refute her claims? How could he when everyone who had seen what had happened was around.

  15. Apity…

  16. Ok i don't know why i'm just seeing this but all the people saying she's a husband snatcher and that she's acting razz sound so stupid and it's all i can do to remain civil and not curse because i'm mighty pissed at the sheer ignorance of some of the comments i just read.Whether she shagged someone's hubby or not is irrelevant because it has absolutely nothing to do with the REAL POINT of this post!!!!

    The matter at hand is the injustice that was dealt by the stupid and so called POLICE that is supposed to uphold the law.

    It is not bad enough that they hit her car,because instead of taking the route of cowardice, she decided to stand up for herself, she was thoroughly beat up.

    I have even heard of instances where the POLICE have shot and killed people in broad daylight and get away with it cos they think they're above the law.

    Here's a woman who knows her rights and refuses to be oppressed. and some people have the nerve to say she's razz and 'uncouth'?? i pray the same thing would happen to all of you who uttered such rubbish and i would just love to see your reaction.

    That's the only language these animals understand.

    I hope they all get what they deserve and rot in hell. God help Nigeria!
