A Nigerian and former BBA contestant, Tayo Faniran has been assaulted and strangled by police officers in South Africa.
Tayo Faniran, a former Big Brother Africa housemate and model, was on Thursday, assaulted and strangled by South African police officers while driving to a meeting for a discussion about his brand.
This is coming weeks after a Nigerian teenager was killed in South Africa.
The sad incident took place after the officers stopped his car, and ordered he rode in their car to the police station, after denying them access to search his phone.
Faniran, who refused complying to their order, took an instagram Live video of the scene.
“On my way to for meeting with Odudia Classics.
“The cops just stopped me and my boys and ordered to check our phones.
“I don’t tolerate this kind of treatment.
“This is what they do to our brothers here.
“I’m a Pan-Africanist,” he said.
One of police officers called in for backup and stated they will “bundle” the former Big Brother Africa housemate to the police station by force.
In response, Tayo stated that it was the xenophobic act him and other Nigerians have been complaining of.
He asked if the South African policemen could stop other cars and do that such, but got no response for that.
Following his insistence on riding to the police station in his own car and refusal to turn off the Instagram Live recording, Tayo Faniran was assaulted and strangled by the South African policemen.
