Recall that few weeks ago, Mavin Record’s artiste, Sidney Esiri a.k.a Dr Sid was`ruffled’ by Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) operatives in Lagos. According to various online media, the SARS operatives mistook Dr. Sid, a medical doctor (dentist) turn musician for a ‘Yahoo boy’, seized his phone, intimidated and harassed him.
He was however saved by the timely intervention of label mate, Reekado Banks and comedian Basket mouth. According to the reports, an eyewitness identified as Laide, said;
“SARS operatives stopped a random vehicle on freedom way, Lekki Phase 1, thinking the driver was a yahoo boy.
“After routine check, they found nothing implicating, and resorted to seizing the phone of the driver. Little did they know that this person is Dr Sid.
They insulted and attempted to assault him physically.
“Thanks to ReekadoBanks and K-Solo, who were there, before basket_mouth @basket_mouth who was driving by saw them and stopped to know what was wrong.
Then, it dawned on the SARS operatives that these guys were not their “yahoo boy customer’’, he said.
