A man has claimed that SARS tried to extort him and his wife of 500,000 Naira after they were seen outside past curfew.
Bruce Bateman said the incident happened 2 weeks ago. He claims the SARS officials drove him and his wife from Lekki to Marina and asked them to withdraw 500K from the ATM. He said 250K was the fine levied on him and 250K on his wife.
He made this revelation while discussing kidnapping and armed robbery. He insinuated that Nigerian policemen are kdinappers and armed robbers because of the way they arrest and extort civilians.
He wrote: “We need Nigerian police to stop kidnappers and armed robbers.
“SARS that drove my wife and I from Lekki to Marina and asked us to withdraw 500k from the ATM if we wanted to be released. Shey that one is not kidnap and armed robbery?”
He added: “Ogbeni was asking me why I was talking to him with my mask on. Do I think they have Covid? Lmao.
“Couldn’t even explain how you can possibly withdraw 500k from an ATM.”
