Despite #EndSARS protest, Man narrates how Police harassed him, forced him to pay N200k in Lagos

A Nigerian man named Oddone has taken to his social media handle to narrate how the Nigeria Police Force still perpetrates injustice in the land despite the massive #EndSARS protest that demanded end to such activities in 2020.

The #EndSARS protest, the largest ever protest in the history of Nigeria saw a large turnout from Nigerians who are fed with the brutality and injustice suffered at the hands of men of the Nigeria Police Force.

Although the ex-IGP, Adamu, dissolved the notorious Special Anti-Roberry Squad (SARS) unit, there seem to be no change in the manners and approach of men in uniform as many Nigerians have lamented suffering at a particular time or the other after the protest died down

On Thursday April 15, 2021, Oddone, who just landed from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) suffered his own share of the Police rascality.

In his story, he narrated that the Police forcefully harassed him, took his phones out of his bag and took him to the police station in Area E Festac town in Lagos.

Narrating further he said:

“When we got there I was asked to give them the sum of 15 million but at the end of the day, i was taking to a POS spot opposite the station and they took the sum of 200k from my account for no just reason.”

“It took the intervention of @Segalink, @SavvyRinu, @Gifted_Kabu who helped me reached out to the right authorities who sent a signals to the festac police unit for the crime their boys must have done,” he wrote via twitter

Meanwhile, SavvyRinu, one of the leading voices during the #EndSARS protest explained that he had to pay N200k to get himself out of detention.

She said: “They forced him to write false statements without his lawyer, then proceeded to ask him to give them N5,000,000. He ended up paying 200k to end the mess.

Oddone however explained that the money he paid the rascal police officers have been returned to him after several interventions from “good” police officers.

He said: “I want to thank the Area E commander @MuyiwaHaliu, @AcpIshaku @PoliceNG_CRU. My money has been Recovered handed over to me.

He thereafter noted that the notorious Police officer had locked up many other persons in their cells including POS agents, expressing that although he still believe there are good people in the Police Force.
