– Outrage As Lagos SARS Officials Go On Rampage; Beat Up Young Man With Plank For Refusing To Unlock His Expensive Phone For Them.
Nigerians are no longer interested in the SARS operation in the country as different bizarre complaints keep coming without any hope of it ending soon. Nigerians are crying everyday – These people are supposed to put smiles on our faces but instead, they are the ones making us cry every day.
Recently, a video of SARS officers beating a young Nigerian man went viral and it has stirred quite a lot of reactions. The reason for the inappropriate torturing of the guy was what even made many people more uncomfortable.
The #EndSARS campaign started 10 days ago after a young man named Kolade Johnson was brutally killed by SARS officers while he was watching a football match in Lagos state and it’s still trending massively on all social media with different horrible complains from Nigerians. That was how this latest story caught our attention.
According to the story, the young Nigerian was walking on a street in Oke Ira, Lagos, when he was stopped by these officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). They searched his bag but they could not find anything incriminatory. The next thing they did was ask him what he did for a living. He told just this and even went on to show them his ID card. Meanwhile, last week Naijpost reported that the police officers from the Anti Robbery Squad that killed Kayode Johnson have been apprehended and subject to internal discipline.
Despite this, the officers decided to still look for any injurious act of his just so they could find an excuse to arrest him. This caused them to ask him why he had 2 phones. Then, they told him to unlock the expensive phone so that they could see what was inside.
