UK-based Ghanaian musician, Fuse ODG, took to social media to share a video capturing an incident where he was allegedly harassed by four Metropolitan police officers in Brixton, South London.
The incident occurred on February 28, as stated in Fuse ODG's Instagram post, during which he was accompanied by his business partner, Andre Hacket.
The officers stopped their car, claiming to have detected the smell of cannabis and expressing their intention to search the vehicle for illegal drugs.
Despite Fuse ODG's request to see a search warrant, he was placed in handcuffs and forcibly taken onto a bus, where he sought an explanation for his treatment.
In the caption of the video shared on May 18, Fuse ODG expressed his frustration, stating, “The sad reality is that as a black man living in this system, it doesn't matter how much money you make or the positive impact that you have on the world, they still only see you as one thing.”
The police defended their actions, asserting that handcuffing was done to ensure the safety of both parties.
Following a thorough search, no drugs were found during the incident.
