#EndSars: Davido, Naira Marley, Olamide, Juliet Ibrahim, others call for the SARS in Nigeria, cry over police brutality and intimidation

Actress Juliet Ibrahim has given an account of her unfortunate experience with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Service which gives meaning to the severity of the phenomenon.

Her account comes in the wake of traditional and social media protests by Nigerians who are unhappy with the operations of SARS.

According to these concerned Nigerians, SARS is killing more lives than it is actually protecting. Per their tweets, when one drives in flashy vehicles or boards Uber, these police officers will stop the car and demand for an explanation.

Which literally meant, the richer and more flashy you appear, the more susceptible are you to the intimidation and brutality of SARS.

With the hashtag #EndSars, Nigerians are calling for the abrupt dissolution of the entity by the government and to restore order and peaceful and safe living to all native dwellers.

Many celebrities and public figures have added their voice to it including Juliet Ibrahim who has narrated her encounter with SARS which has left a bitter taste in her mouth.

I have personally been stopped by #Sars officers in lekki after watching a movie at the IMAX cinema around 10 pm last year. We were in an Uber car and without any reasons given; we were asked by 2 drunk SARS Officers to step out of the car so they can search our bags! #SarsAlert

We demanded to know why because this is not done and he insisted on searching even after my Assistant had shown him his international Ghanaian passport. They didn’t have an answer as to why they decided to stop my sister, myself and my assistant that night! #EndSARS #MrGovernor

After we opened our bags for them, went back and forth insisting it was Wrong in all ramification to search our handbags when we hadn’t committed any offense; a 3rd officer showed up and recognized me and started hailing me that he watches my movies. #EndSARS #mrgovernor

He then asked the guys to let me be and asked “anything for the boys?” Which I told him NO I had no money!!! We were allowed to leave but here’s the terrifying shock! WHAT IF, we were harassed further or molested by these drunk officers? WHAT IF!!! #EndSarsNow #MrGovernor

Are we going to sit back and watch more innocent people killed, harassed and attacked by #SARS before we start speaking up?! It happened to ME TOO and it can happen to your Fathers, Mothers, Uncles, brothers and sisters and Foreigners visiting Nigeria!!#ENDSARSNOW #MrGovernor
