Big Brother Naija star, Hermes, has cried out on social media after he was profiled by police officers in Lagos state.
The reality star, who had previously recounted how before the show he frequently found himself in police custody despite having committed no crime, because of his looks, was yet again profiled despite his new celebrity status.
A video Hermes shared via his social media page showed a police officer searching the car he was in with his team. At some point, they got down from the car as the police officer thoroughly searched their bags.
According to him, because of their looks, the officers were searching their vehicle and bags in search of drugs.
“Omo police don profile me, see my manager. This is profiling. They think we have money now and they are looking for drugs inside my vehicle. Policemen, they see we are fine. We were inside Uber we don’t have a car yet. They stopped us, we didn’t carry anything”, he narrated in one of the videos.

A while ago, Hermes during a conversation with his colleagues claimed that he spends at least four nights a week in police custody.
According to him, he has been arrested several times by the police due to his hairstyle and piercings. He noted that he is often judged wrongly by people due to his looks but remains undeterred as he projects creativity through them. Read here.
