The rapper turned actor made this known via his Instagram page on Friday, April 12, 2019, while reacting to a viral video where a young man was brutally assaulted by men of SARS. For Ikechukwu, if any member of the special police squad ever gets to attack him, he would disarm and shoot the officer.

"When I say this I really mean it, the day these type of individuals run into me I might end up dying that day. Truth is how much humility and calm are u supposed to have? Even if we want to believe that God is using the situation to test us, will he test us to our death and demise? For what reason is such an individual wearing the uniform of one who is supposed to protect and serve the same person he is bludgeoning and raping of his rights in broad daylight so bold and so arrogant with slaps to follow and insults. Then more planking. 

"My God I beg u please cos I will disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun. I swear on it. If u powers that be cant do what is necessary then step the fuck outta office and outta the way and allow people who are about change and fairness and rules and regulations and proper protocols and due process take ur place. For u are the tumbleweed and the winds are high, the storm that in brewing is nigh, overspill is inevitable, and the drops I feel upon my umbrella. This rain shall pour and it will be torrential. Nuff said #ENDSARS," he wrote.

Ikechukwu has joined the endless list of celebrities who have made a continuous call on the government to call the men of SARS order.
