An operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Lagos State Police Command got the shock of his life on Thursday after allegedly harassing a young man standing in front of a bank in Ikorodu area of Lagos.
The SARS officer simply identified as AK is said to be notorious for harassing, illegally arresting and extorting money from youngmen in Ikorodu.
AK and his colleagues were said to be attempting to arrest the young man standing close to the bank waiting for his mother who had gone into the bank for a transaction.
According to an eyewitness, the man was waiting for his mother who is the wife of a military officer when the officer and his colleagues attempted to arrest him.
The eyewitness who shared a video of the incident on social media wrote:
“The incident happened in front of a Polaris bank. The lady and her son had gone to carry out a transaction at the bank, only for AK – attached to State CIID, Mowonla, Ikorodu – to start harassing the boy while waiting for his mom outside the bank.
“However, when the mom stepped out and saw what was going on, she went rogue on the SARS operatives, who all fled, abandoning A.K, after realizing that she’s the wife of a soldier. It took the intervention of passersby to rescue the officer from her.”
