Another shocking video of police brutality emerges

Despite denials by the Force Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, CSP Jimoh Moshood that officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad [SARS], do not engage in brutality and extra-judicial killings of Nigerians, more evidence is still pouring out.

This time, it a video of a man who was brutalized by men of the SARS at Agric Bus Stop in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.

According to an eyewitness who posted the shocking video on Facebook with the username TLarge1612, the victim was accosted by the officers who demanded to go through his mobile phone and when the man refused, the officers descended on him and dealt with him mercilessly.

The officers were said to have dared anyone to come to the man's rescue, vowing to make such an intruder a scapegoat and he would also taste from their brutality.

The man who said he did not want to be part of the #EndSARS campaign that has been ongoing on the social media for many days now, said he decided to post the video as another evidence of the brutality of the SARS operatives.

This is what Tlarge wrote:

“I didn’t want to initially join this #EndSARS ish but with this am seeing at Agric Bus Stop in Ikorodu, I shake my head for our #Nigeriapoliceforce and our country #Nigeria.

I thought our laws say you are innocent until proven guilty by a law court…. #NPFisajudge#poloceNG_PCR.”

The #EndSARS and #EndSARSBrutality has been trending on Twitter since it came online on Friday, December 1, 2017, with many Nigerians from all walks of life including celebrities and politicians joining in.

However, the FPPRO had earlier come out to say that those behind the hashtag could be criminals before saying in an interview with Channels TV that investigations have revealed that mischievous politicians are the sponsors of the hashtags.
