VIDEO: SARS Operatives Caught Extorting Money From Man In Asaba
Another day another SARS wahala.
For the umpteenth time, the activities of the operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, have been called to question.
Seven SARS operatives were caught on video in the process of extorting money from an innocent citizen in Asaba, Delta state.
Maxwell, a building contractor was stopped by the officers as he was exiting a fuel station with a keg of petrol.
He was searched and when they found nothing on him, the officers searched his phone and concluded he was a "Yahoo" boy.
The SARS officers allegedly drove Maxwell to different ATMs around town so he could withdraw money and give to them to secure his release.
It was while he was waiting in line at an ATM to withdraw money that he was spotted by Harrison Gwamnishu, the Director General of Behind Bars Intervention.
Harrison Gwamnishu and the BBI team intervened and helped secure the release of Maxwell.
Gwamnishu said, "They drove him round the town and negotiated for his release. From N300,000, N50,000, they agreed to collect N10,000 from Maxwell'.
"After Maxwell made the withdrawal, our DG followed him to handover the N10,000. For the safety of our DG, he played safe by telling them, "if Maxwell committed a crime, ATM machine is not a Police Station."
"They drove Maxwell and detained him at GRA Divisional Police station. Behind Bars Intervention Team hurriedly arrived at the station, put a call across to their superior and Maxwell was released.
