A Nigerian Engineer took to his social media profile to share a video which captured the moment he was allegedly arrested, handcuffed and extorted by SARS officers for keeping beards.
The Engineer identified as Tochi Nwawuba said the incident happened at Lekki Phase 1 . He said the SARS operatives demanded a N200k bail from him. He said he later paid N50k to secure his release after they threatened to shoot him and claim he committed a crime.
He wrote “I was arrested yesterday by SARS on my way from work….my beards is now Nigeria problem despite I told them my profession as an engineer with my ID but them no wan gree hear my own, all they want to do is to open my phone and laptop that was at the back of my car and me self no gree for them too and this was how I was kept like a criminal at lekki phase1 last night and was asking 200k for my bailout on the road, may God help us in this country becos we have no human right in Nigeria but I later pay 50k cash that was with me to them on the road becos they told me they will shoot me and put a crime on my head if I don’t cooperate with them”
