Nigerian rapper Ikechukwu recently took to social media with a post in which he recounted his harrowing experience with operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The rapper explained that he was kidnapped on the night of Wednesday, September 4, by SARS operatives, just a few blocks from his residence.
He said he was afterwards driven all the way to Lagos Island, where he was made to forcefully give out his ATM allowance or lose his life without anyone knowing about had happened.
Explaining further, the music star condemned the government and submitted that nobody, regardless of status is safe from becoming a victim of SARS officers.
“Let me tell u now straight up. I do not care who you are, if you are rolling solo in this town and SARS get you in the day or night. If they get your phone, it is over for you. They do not have names or numbers on their uniforms,” he said.
The rapper divulged that the officers tried to accuse him of a crime he was completely innocent of, despite the fact that they knew who he was.
He said after they had extorted him, they started making petty jokes and even asked him to introduce them to Don Jazzy.
Ikechukwu pointed out that one of the men bragged about working with popular radio station Wazobia FM. According to him, the piece of information will be very much of help in trying to investigate the matter and bring them to book.

Not by armed robbers. But when u are robbed and they are armed fully , 5 ak-47’s . Blows to the head and bundled into a vehicle. Isnt it the same thing. And then after u will now tell me our govt is working. Things are in place. Bla bla. Let me tell u now straight up. I dont care who u are , if u are rolling solo in this town and sars get u. Day or night. If they get ur phone. Its over for u. They dont have names or numbers on their uniforms. They literally said to me ” na u burn this our hilux here yesterday abii” . Acting like they didnt know who i was and were gonna rope me in anything they felt or do with me what they would. After collecting all the money in lagos island they start laughing telling me im too stubborn that when will i introduce them to don jazzy. Oh so u know me. One even bragged about working alot with wazobiafm. Thanx for that info at least now i have a point to start my own investigation. I couldve been shot and left in the dark space on thst dark road. No id no phone . Who would id me. Who would be looking for me for days? Afterall my people saw me enter uber heading home. On the island. Shey im safe . Good morning. Its a good day to be alive. I dont even know what hashtag to put sef. Its ok. I recorded a video initially from when I got home last night but it was too long and it made me cry again.
