Welcome to Nigeria where the Government is the people in power but not with power. #ENDSARS campaign has ceased after the government promised to curtail the harassment Nigerians face in the hands of SARS operatives.
We have reported several occasion where Nigerians have been harassed by dreaded SARS operatives. find them here.
Today it was Mavin’s act, Dr Sid who was harassed today by SARS officers. They mistook him for a “yahoo boy”. Dr Sid's phone was seized, was reportedly saved from physical assault by the timely intervention of label mate, Reekado Banks and comedian Basketmouth.
An Instagram user, Laide who witnessed the incident wrote;
“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 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 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” Ise baje
That’s how Dr Sid vex too and started to call. Just imagine that it was an “ordinary ” civilian that was harassed today , baba for don dey cell now.”
It is a bad thing for these wolves in sheep clothing to be preying on Nigerians and all the government can do is to stay mute.
