My Uber just got pulled over by SARS officials. It was f@*king scary! 5 criminal-looking, thug-like individuals in an unmarked commercial bus (danfo). Searched the 2 of the 3 phones I was with, asked me to log in to my laptop (I politely asked "Why?") #EndSARS #StopRobbingUs

Location is Igbo Efon junction on Lekki - Epe Expressway heading east towards Chevron. Broad daylight, traffic light turns red, driver stops, there's only 1 car ahead of us, danfo pulls up right beside me (on the right), and these men surround the doors of the Toyota Corolla

I'm seated in the back seat, earphones in my ears on a video call with people from different cities across the world. After insisting & nearly pulling a gun on him, driver rolls down his windows, unlocks the doors, and 2 of the men jump into the car, 1 in front, 1 beside me

As I left the police Station this night. I was confused where exactly to go.. I checked my pocket and I didn't have enough to transport myself home.. I have been robbed and tortured by those who were supposed to defend me. Over here the police isn't your friend broo.

Thread.
It was like any other day, and started with me on my way home from my friend @naijatechguy place. I boarded a motorcycle and just before I got to my stop, some police van barricaded my motorcycle. Aloof of what was going on, I noticed my bike man turning his bike round...
turning his bike round to make a run. Perplexed with what was happening, why is this bike man running, is he a criminal? The police threatened to shoot and fear gripped me and I joined in begging the bike man to pls stop. I don't want to get shot for a reason I might never know.

Police harassment, assault and extortion
On the 8th of October, 2019, I boarded GIGM bus with vehicle registration number AGB197Z rom Abuja to Enugu with my mum and siblings. On getting to the boundary between Benue and Enugu( udenu before obolloafor from Benue),
around 4-5pm, we were stopped at a "stop and search" check point by the men of the Nigerian police force with vehicle number NPF7747C. The officer asked the driver to park and asked me to come down, which I obeyed and asked me "what do I do" and I explained to him that I'm
applying for my master degree while looking for job as well. He then searched me and found my phones (Samsung and iPhone 5) and wallet which he asked me to opened and found money and my "non citizen ID card" that I did while schooling in Ghana. He went on to search my

For the past 4hours we have been in the orderly room trial of the rogue officers that abducted, assaulted, and robbed @toniastro_ at gun point. They were a team of 6 involved in the gang rape of his fundamental human rights but thus far only 4 were present at the trial. #SRU
The Provost Marshal is strict and by the book. He has demanded for the arrest of others involved, who the accused are trying to shield as it is their custom. Thus far, justice is taking its toll and by tomorrow the office of the PPRO will release a statement once it concludes.
While we were there more cases kept pouring in from Area H Ogudu which from all evidences have proven to be the hub of criminals in police uniform, who are dedicated to terrorizing citizens in the area. Two more cases are in process involving robbery, assault & abduction.

An IT Staff of WEMA Bank, who worked overnight & was on his way back home was summarily abducted by rogue @PoliceNG officers seeking ransom in the early hours of this morning. They’ve switch off his phone & we’re yet to locate their position. We suspect TaskForce or Anti Cultism.
These predators MUST never be allowed to continue this way. We can not continue to go around in circles. The Commander if Anti Cultism in Lagos MUST be removed. The criminal hideout in SACS Gbagada is inimical to our dignity & human rights. Warn Area commanders aiding this.
The IGP should see this as the last call lest we begin to grapple with citizen-led policing. We’ll no longer be sitting ducks for rogues robbing & kidnapping innocent citizens going about their business. We’ll begin a search for Ugo & where he is being held will be shutdown.

So I thought I wouldn't do this but after seeing how promptly @toniastro_ issues with SARS operatives is being handled, I thought not to die in silence and voice out my ordeals with them.
A thread.
On the 23rd of August, just last month, it was a friday. I have just secured a job with Ofood and I planned on going back to my place in Oshogbo to pack some of my clothes and stuffs so I can fully resume work.
I got to Ojota, highlighted from the Danfo I took from Onipan and just as I was about entering the park, a Sienna car parked right in my front and a policeman dressed in mofty held me and asked me if I didn't hear him calling me. I said I didn't hear him and the other one dressed
