Many negative reports of encounters with SARS has been making the news lately, recently a Nigerian artiste claimed he was almost shot dead by alleged SARS officers in Lagos.
The Nigerian singer BlackGold took to Instagram to narrate a sad experience he had with SARS operatives in Lagos when he was moving round town with his sister.
According to him, they almost shot him if not for the intervention of the people around the location and without any incriminating exhibit, the SARS operatives allegedly deflated their tyres and labelled them Yahoo boys.
It’s really funny how every young boy out there is assumed a yahoo boy smh🤦♂️ My experience today though !
So I was driving today with my sister at ajah junction wen sars officials stopped us , funny enough they initially allowed us to pass o,just when they saw me at the passenger’s sit they quickly stopped us probably thinking I was a yahoo boy and my sister had already passed because one of the officers already said she should go.
so when the other officer said she should stop because he saw me she refused and zoomed off because we already passed the junction and one of the officers already told us to go ,as we were driving thinking it was all over just for us to see them with their corolla chasing us like criminals.
I then told my sister to stop I went down and confronted them and asked why they were chasing us like criminals and one of them said if I talk he was going to slap me,I said why would you slap me what’s the problem and they started tagging us “criminals” while the other one said i’m a “yahoo boy” on the process of trying to talk to them one went straight to my sister’s tyre and started lessing the tyres and even threatened to shoot at us.
in the process of stopping them they cracked gun at me if not for people around they probably would have shot at me and immediately they ran off after people came out and started screaming at them , please I’m calling on the @nigeriapoliceforce to look into this….it’s no longer a funny matter , not all young guys out there are fraudsters or yahooboys ! Please get your facts straight before interrogating innocent citizens. I wouldn’t say #Endsars but #resructuresars. @segalink Thank you
