Rapper shares video of how to identify a true SARS officer
Here is a video of Ruggedman helping the police show the public how to identify a real SARS officer.
The veteran rapper took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, where he posted a video of his visit to the new OC SARS Lagos state, CSP Peter Gana. He went on to show the logos that are imprinted in the uniforms of original SARS officers.
"So back to my mission with the new OC SARS Lagos state, CSP Peter Gana. He said a lot of people have been impersonating and carrying out terrible acts as sars officials and he showed me how to spot fake sars. So I thought to share them with my people. 1. The real sars have a Red scorpion on their cap and jacket with the number 039 on them. 2. Sars units are only allocated 2 riffles. So any group of alleged sars officials you see with more than 2 riffles are fake. I then told him that 1. Without a proper uniform, anybody (including armed robbers) can buy black t-shirts and print sars on them. 2. They need proper mode of identification e.g. name/number badge to make tracing their station easy.\
"3. Since they are a special unit with so much negativity around them at the moment, it's best to get them off the streets for now (unless when a special crime is happening) because the brutalisation, extortion, kidnapping and unlawful arrests of innocent Nigerians is too much. We don't have a problem with them dealing with confirmed criminals, but treating innocent Nigerians like animals is turning the country into a ticking time bomb.
"If you fall victim to the rogue officials, if a video is impossible just try to get a good picture of one of them. Then dm me or call CSP Chike, PPRO, Lagos - 07065246927; CSP Dolapo, ZPPRO, Onikan - 09071555555 and CSP Peter Gana, OC FSARS Ikeja- 08033119661. Just like us, he is also tired of the police impunity. While we wait to see the difference the new OC Sars has promised, the #Endsars campaign is here to stay until our demands are met," he wrote.
Ruggedman is known to be a very vocal person when it comes to issues relating to SARS and their inhumane treatment of Nigerians. A few months ago, he had an outburst with a top police officer over the death of a young man who was reportedly killed by SARS.

Ruggedman ASP clash on social media over young man's death
A few months ago, precisely in April 2018 after a young man was reportedly killed by SARS officers, Ruggedman clashed with a senior police officer over the issue. It would be recalled that video of the men and operatives of SARS manhandling a certain young man who they claimed refused to allow them to see the content of his phone. It was reported that he died from wounds inflicted by the officers.
Now the gist was that ASP Badmus came out to say that, the Lagos state commissioner of police, Edgar Imohimi interrogated the officers involved in the alleged murder. However, rapper, Ruggedman wasn't having any of this statement as he went on to call out the PRO saying that Nigerians are tired of hearing the same news all the time.
