Many believe in the judicial systems in Nigeria, but Skales is not one of them. For here?
Popular musician Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, better known by his stage name Skales, strongly disputes the notion that there is justice in Nigeria.
The artiste made his stance during a recent interview on the Pulse network Terms and Conditions podcast, stressing that justice does not exist in the federal republic. To the singer, justice is only attained in Nigeria when the masses are in the know of what is going on.
This comes after the frightful encounter he had with some Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives who broke into his home on October 10, 2023, sending his residents into panic. Revisiting that chaotic night, Skales stressed that the operatives would have gotten away with the injustices if he hadn’t called everyone’s attention to it on his Twitter account.
He said, “There’s no justice here. I don’t believe in justice in Nigeria, if you check my tweets, I said ‘Who am I going to report to?’ All I believe is that if the people know what’s going on, that’s when justice works. Guess what they would have gotten away with this if I hadn’t spoken if I didn’t speak up and that day was just bad business for them because they did not know that it was Skales’ house that they were going to. When they came and asked whose house it was my boys told them that it was Skales maybe that’s why they came to my room to confirm. So imagine if I was not Skales, what would have happened?”
Back on October 10, after the raid happened in the singer’s home, the EFCC had initially denied ever breaking into his home and requested evidence of the fact. But after Skales provided a multitude of evidence on his account to back up his claims, the commission attested that they were acting on a tip. After this, they announced that they arrested two suspected fraudsters from his residence, one of whom was Skales’ signee. During the interview, he also disclosed that his signee had not been released since then, and no charges were levied against him.
