A Nigerian youth who wish to be unnamed has narrated his ordeal with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the police and how they demanded N1m bail to free him after an illegal arrest.
The man, said his friend and him were forcefully arrested, adding that the SARS officials threatened to kill him if he attempted to contact anyone for help.
He said, “After checking our phones and finding nothing, they told my friend to get down from the car and get into their bus. He complied.“In the car, they started to threaten me. Telling me how they will lock me up, chain me and no one would do anything about it.
“They told me that if I tried to call out for help again, they will shoot me and throw my body down and no one would find me. These guys are real demons.“After driving for about one hour, they asked us to pay them N1m, which I asked why?”
“Seeing that we weren’t about to give them the money, they ended up bringing it down to N100,000, which they drove us to Zenith Bank along Osolo way, opposite SOS home where they made my guy get down from the bus to withdraw the money from the ATM.“After they got the money, they let us go. Till now I still do not know my crime,” he said.
