A Nigerian footballer, Tony Edjomariegwe has joined the #EndSARS campaign by narrating his encounter with officers from the controversial police unit.
In a Facebook post he shared, the former Shooting Stars and Kano Pillars’ attacking midfielder who currently plays in Morocco with Moghreb Tétouan, claimed SARS officials demanded for $1,000 from him when he was in the country last year for the holidays.
He further disclosed that the officials allegedly made the demand after describing him a “suspect”.
“I remembered last year I came back and was stopped by Sars and they told me I was a suspect asking me to call my coach, captain and president of my team. They even asked me which police station I reported to when I came into the country, Even after seeing all evidence of me and my job on youtube and google, they still took me to a police station and ask me to come behind the station while smoking all sorts of stuffs weeds and the rest asking me to pay 1000$. It’s pathetic and annoying seeing the harassment extortions and killings. We nor do again oga president. #Endsarsnow
