#ENDSARSNOW: Praiz Reveals Recent Harassment By SARS
The campaign to put an end to the operation of Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Nigeria is majorly prompted by cases such as the one Nigerian soul singer and Folashade crooner, Praiz experienced yesterday on his way to his record label’s Christmas party where he was harassed by agents of SARS for reasons unknown.
The singer revealed that he had been stopped and taken to Ajah police station where his phone was damaged in the event of him trying to record the scene.
The singer posted the issue on Instagram stating that this is not his official statement as that is still underway.
Anyone that truly knows me well knows i am an easy going , non problematic, happy and co -operative individual.
Well, I’m not here to talk about myself. I am here to address issues that happens in our society everyday.
We live in a society where the government has failed us whether we like it or not. No jobs, fuel scarcity , SARS , Asuu Strike , Nupeng Strike , Name it….. it’s endless .. HARDSHIP… ENDLESS HARDSHIP …. Today I had an encounter that a lot of people go through everyday. People who are heading home after a failed interview, people going home after a night shift , people on their way to get their daily bread but get harassed by people who are the force because of reasons best known to them or maybe because u are a young boy wearing a gold chain or have a beard .
Though I won’t deny the existence of great people in the police force that are ready to listen , I still stand by my opinion which is popular amongst the youth and more#ENDSARS
Today I learnt that the police force needs deep reform and sensitization.
This is not my official statement… my official statement will be out soon
Lastly I will like to thank @aleeygiwa , Mr Etim Godwin from J command for stepping in… #EndSars#NoBePhysicalSomething
With the rate at which these Special Anti-Robbery Agents are harassing Nigerians for nothing, Nigerians have stormed the various online communities screaming #ENDSARS and it is the hope of many that the government pay attention to the cries of the people it is leading.
Some people are already advising the singer to sue the government but his soon to be out statement will certainly reveal the decision he has made.
