The Nigeria-born former England Under-21 international said: “If police read me wrong, they could take my life. I never go out and feel 100 percent safe.

“I’m always very wary of how I behave and how it could be viewed by people who have power.

“For me personally, overall I don’t like to say it, but I have a fear and distrust towards police.”

“I have loved living in this country but there is [another] side of it.
