A Nigerian man identified as Bruce Bateman has recounted how him and his wife were asked to pay the sum of ₦500,000 by SARS officials for violating the lockdown curfew.
According to Bruce, the SARS officials drove him and his wife from Lekki to Marina and asked them to withdraw the 500k from the ATM if they wanted to be released.
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.”
