Recently, a video of SARS officers beating a young Nigerian man recently went viral and it has stirred quite a lot of reactions. The reason for the inappropriate torturing of the guy was what even made many people more uncomfortable.
According to the story, the young Nigerian was walking on a street in Oke Ira, Lagos, when he was stopped by these officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
They searched his bag but they could not find anything incriminatory. The next thing they did was ask him what he did for a living. He told just this and even went on to show them his ID card.
Despite this, the officers decided to still look for any injurious act of his just so they could find an excuse to arrest him. This caused them to ask him why he had 2 phones. Then, they told him to unlock the expensive phone so that they could see what was inside.
At this point, the young man got angry. He stood his ground and told them blatantly that he was going to unlock it. For this sheer reason, the officers started slapping him and beating him with plank right in the middle of the market with traders staring surprisingly.
The beating was brutal and born out of anger than duty. Eventually, it was said that they seized his phone, beat him more with the wooden plank and told him to come all the way to Alagbon FCIID police station in order to retrieve it.
