Video of Fuse ODG being harassed by UK Police pops up on social media
UK-based Ghanaian musician, Nana Richard Abiona, also known as Fuse ODG, recently shared a video of him being harassed by four Metropolitan police officers in Brixton, South London.
The development ensued in the company of his business partner, Andre Hacket on February 28 this year, according to the musician’s Instagram post.
The officers had stopped and surrounded their car, claiming that they perceived the smell of cannabis and wanted to search the vehicle for illegal drugs.

Despite Fuse ODG’s demands to see their search warrant, he was kept in handcuffs and had to be dragged onto a bus where he asked for an explanation for his wrongful treatment.
In the caption accompanying the video shared on May 18, Fuse ODG wrote; “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 justified their actions by saying the handcuffs were to prevent harm to both parties.
After a thorough search, no drugs were found.
