Hood boys chase away SARS officers who messed with them

The operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad were greeted by angry youths who forced their exit from a neighbourhood in Ikotun.

Things are getting heated for operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) in Lagos who were chased away in an Ikotun neighbourhood.

A footage shared on Instablog9ja today revealed the policemen as they drove away in a white escort vehicle.

The loud chants of a mob seemed to have made them leave the location in silence.

 

This marks hard times for officers who work in the police department which has seen criticism following many reports of abuse.

Recently, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris ordered the men to desist from indiscriminate searches on individuals unless deemed necessary.

But there have been more reports of harassment since the order was given.
