As cyber crime has become the Go-To business for young jobless Nigerian youths, the government has put in place special squads to help fight this menace, one of such squad is the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).
Just yesterday, Dr Sid was harassed by Sars when he was mistook to be a fraudster. Adding to the fact that his new new hair style made matters worst.
According to an eyewitness, the singer was driving along the popular Lekki-Epe expressway when he was pulled over by the overzealous policemen. The SARS officers then seized his phone and almost physically assaulted him, but for the intervention of label mate, Reekado Banks, and comedian Basketmouth.
The eyewitness said the policemen thought Dr Sid was a ‘Yahoo boy’ and decided to prey on him. It was when the policemen realized that they weren’t dealing with a ‘Yahoo boy’ because of the timely intervention of comedian, Basketmouth who was driving by that they let him go.
It appears Dr. Sid has joined other celebrities that has been harassed by men of SARS as we can all recall when music producer, SARZ was arrested briefly by men of SARS. According to the producer, he met the dreaded members of the police special unit while driving.
In one of his tweets, he said because he forgot his driver’s license and didn’t have an ID card, the officers threatened to deal with him.
Another celebrity who has also encountered a not so funny experience in the hands of SARS is the singer, Praiz. It is alleged that the singer was on his way to the end of year party organised by his record label by in December 2017, when he was stopped by the police officials along Lekki-Epe expressway.
According to THE NET, the singer’s phone was smashed by the officers when he tried to record the event as he was assaulted and later arrested.
