Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Josephine Otabor, aka Phyna, was involved in an altercation with some operatives of the Nigeria Police at the weekend.
The “Level Up” winner, Phyna’s vehicle was stopped by the officers on a highway in Lagos for a stop-and-search operation, but their mode of operation didn’t go well with her.
The situation, however, immediately degenerated into a verbal altercation, and the reality star went live on Instagram in the midst of the drama.
In a recorded clip from the live session, Phyna could be heard saying that she went live because one of the police officers was recording her with his phone when she was alighting from her car after they ordered her to.
Phyna: “You would have handled me better.”
Police officer: “I never knew you from anywhere, you call yourself a celebrity. That your celebrity is for you.”
Phyna: “Baba, you for no video. My own be say, you go let me waka from the motor side. You would tell me step out, I would step out, then you video. Not that I’m coming down and you’re carrying camera. No na.”
