Singer narrates his ugly experience with SARS officers
Reekado Banks is the latest celebrity who has had a personal story to share in the hands of men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The music star who didn't have nice words for the special police took to his Twitter page on Sunday June 3, 2018, where he downplayed his encounter with them.
"I don’t even know the difference btw SARZ and ARMED ROBBERS! The ones I met today overtook in a regular car, No uniforms, immediately pointed their guns and asked that we came down from the car, then calmed down when they noticed me. Biko what if I wasn’t me ???'' he tweeted.
From this tweet, it looks like Reekado Banks must have been really ticked off to have vented his anger on Twitter. This is not the first time a celebrity would be bringing their frustrations faced in the hands of SRAS officers on social media.
