Rapper slams senior police officer over perceived fake comments
Ruggedman is not happy with the comments made about him by the ACP Yomi Shogunle.
The veteran rapper took to his Instagram page on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, where he dragged an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Yomi Shogunle over comments he made about him. Yomi Shogunle had mocked Ruggedman for leaving the #EndSARS campaign and joining the #ReformSARS party. Ruggedman didn't take these comments likely as he took to his Instagram to address the statement credited to Yomi Shogunle.
"Officer @yomishogunle I have heard about how incompetent and dubious you are but this disgraceful act of yours takes the cake. This baseless and fabricated post of yours just goes to show you are a shameless liar and a disgrace to the @nigeriapoliceforce. Since you obviously do not respect the uniform you wear, the innocent people being brutalised daily I never expected you to respect me.
"I see your pathetic comments trying to ridicule people who used to come to you for help and I always thought you were a disgrace to that position. Now I am certain you are. Do not ever in your life post anything I never said to you about me or on my behalf. I would have said you take it down but I know my post will reach more people and it will expose you for the lying, deceitful and disrespectful man you are. NIGERIANS I AM ALL FOR #endsars until the force is reformed and reorientated on how to treat people as the humans they are," he wrote.
This is coming less than 48 hours after Ruggedman had shared a video on his Instagram page on how to identify a real SARS officer.
Ruggedman shares video of how to identify a true SARS officer
A few days ago, Ruggedman shared a video on how to identify a true SARS officer which has gone viral. 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.
