The comedian, who was impressed with how the force handled his home robbery case, paid them a visit on Friday, March 17, 2017.

The comedian visited the office of the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, where he retrieved the stolen items that were recovered from the thieves. Expressing his appreciation over the effort of the NPF he said:

“I want to thank the Nigeria Police for a job well-done. I thought I will never see again the items stolen from my house. It is amazing that with two weeks of the robbery attack, the suspects were arrested, my handset recovered.

“I usually make negative jokes about our police, but with this performance, I will never use them for negative jokes. I advise members of the public to always support the police.

“In western nations, it is the public that assists the police for information against criminals.”


According to The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), two of the suspects that invaded Basketmouth’s house have been arrested and charged to court.

The comedian is grateful at this development and vows to uphold the integrity of the Nigeria Police. He swears to protect the force and not talk them down in jokes as him and his other colleagues have been doing in the past.

Hopefully, other comedians and entertainers will follow suit in applauding the good side of the Nigeria police force rather than paint bad their weaknesses.
