His reaction translates the mood of many Nigerians who seem to have had a fill of the rampant cases of intimidation and abuse reportedly carried out by SARS operatives.

The rate of their violent treatment of civilians appears to be on a daily basis due to numerous reports detailing the experiences of Nigerians when it concerns their dealings with SARS agents.
