A Nigerian man in UK identified as Flexing Mike, was said to be streaming live on Instagram as he listened to 2Pac Shakur’s music (Hit Em Up). He drank alcohol in the process while displaying several weapons including a submachine gun which he fired several rounds from his balcony in the UK.
In the video, Flexing Mike, a record company executive was heard shouting; “Dem dey crase? Dem dey mad? I will disturb the peace of Great Britain today! Call me the f^^king cops, I don blow tools everywhere now. Them no fit call the police. How can I shoot all this bullets, police did not come, them dey mad?”
People who witnessed the incident make saveral record and post the videos online.
Later in the day, Kent Police stormed the scene, following distressed call to “a disturbance at a flat” and officers were sent to the scene after members of the public reported seeing a man with weapons.
He was arrested. Force said four suspected imitation firearms were found at the scene of his arrest. Some people told the police that they suspected that the guns were not real and this probably saved Flexing Mike’s life, though he might still be in trouble because possession of an imitation gun in the UK is illegal.
A witness said “the man was on a balcony of a flat on the top floor of the tower block ‘about 30 floors,’ he was carrying on for a good half-an-hour. We were all in the front of the shop and you could see the pistol and a rifle and you could see the sparks coming off of it. He was just randomly shooting.”
