Nigerian singer and Mavin records’ artiste, Dr Sid was on the 18th of April harassed by Special Anti-Robbery Squad officers (SARS) with claims that he is a YahooBoy!
This was spotted on Instagram where his label mate, Reekado Banks and Nigerian comedian, BasketMouth intervened before the singer was almost physically assaulted, that is after his phone was seized by the officials.
According to an eyewitness, Laide;
“Sars operatives stopped a random vehicle on freedom way, Lekki Phase 1, thinking the driver was a yahoo boy.
After routine check, they found nothing implicating, and resorted to seizing the phone of the driver. Little did they they know, that this person is Dr Sid. They insulted and attempted to assault him physically.
Thanks to ReekadoBanks and K-Solo, who were there, before @basket_mouth who was driving by saw them and stopped to know what was wrong. Then, it dawned on the SARS operatives that these guys were not their “yahoo boy customer” Ise baje
That’s how Dr Sid vex too and started to call. Just imagine that it was an “ordinary ” civilian that was harassed today, baba for don dey cell now.”
This action only proves the campaign Nigerians have been going on and on about to end SARS operation as most of the operation revealed have allegedly been to unnecessarily lynch Nigerians.
