In Abeokuta, Ogun State, the officers of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) had too much to chew following an assault on a soldier thought to be a Yahoo Boy.

A footage shared via Instagram today showed a violent scene revealing a confrontation between a group of policemen and the serviceman.


The soldier who was dressed casually did not appear pleased following the assault which ensured his shirt was ripped.

As seen in the video, the party engaged themselves in an unfriendly conversation held close to a vehicle suspected to be owned by the soldier.
