#ENDSARS: Entire Police Force Needs Reforms - Falz
"They gave him a dirty slap, he was close to tears. They said they would arrest us and take us their station"
Falz has finally revealed his own encounter with the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS), days after thousands of Nigerians protested the human rights violations committed by members of haunted special unit.
"On this particular day, they spotted us somewhere in Lagos and double-crossed us, they then asked us to come down from our car.
"My manager tried to have a conversation with them but before he knew it, they gave him a dirty slap, he was close to tears. They said they would arrest us and take us their station.
"I wanted to sue them, not as a lawyer, but solely because they violated my human rights, but then, it is really sad that they think because they have guns, they think they are in a position of power and they use these to oppress poor Nigerians.” he said.
He suggested that the police force needs a revamp. The lawyer and musician complained that many police officers are not as educated as they should be, so they treat people disrespectfully.
The 'Something Light' crooner also accused SARS of turning fashion into crime.
"These are the men who are supposed to protect us, but they are opening fire on us.
"They have resulted to targeting young guys. These days, once they see a young man looking flashy, they automatically think you are a yahoo boy”, he complained.
