Everything you need to live well
Popular Nigerian singer and actor, Ikechukwu has warned of what will happen if any official of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) ever try to harass him the way they harass other Nigerian citizens.
The entertainer shared a heartbreaking video of SARS officials harassing and beating a man because he refused to let them search his phone.
He went on to condemn the officers for terrorising citizens rather than protect and serve them. In his post, he threatened to disarm any SARS personnel that harasses him as he would attack back and shoot him with his own gun.
Commenting on SARS brutality, Ikechukwu wrote:
“When I say this, I really mean it. The day these type of individuals run into me, I might end up dying that day. Truth is how much humility and calm are you supposed to have? Even if we want to believe that God is using the situation to test us, will he test us to our death and demise?
For what reason is such an individual wearing the uniform of one who is supposed to protect and serve the same person he is bludgeoning and raping of his rights in broad daylight so bold and so arrogant with slaps to follow and insults. Then more planking.
My God, I beg you please because I will disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun. I swear on it. If the powers that be can’t do what is necessary then step the fuck out of office and out of the way and allow people who are about change and fairness and rules and regulations and proper protocols and due process take ur place.
For you are the tumbleweed and the winds are high, the storm that is brewing is nigh, overspill is inevitable, and the drops I feel upon my umbrella. This rain shall pour and it will be torrential. Enough said. #ENDSARS.”
Ikechukwu’s rant is coming barely two weeks after the tragic death of Kolade Johnson, a young Nigeria who was fatally shot while watching football at a viewing centre by a SARS operative. Johnson’s death led to a renewed call for the #EndSARS campaign with citizens expressing their outrage about police brutality.
