On Saturday, 3 October, 2020, videos surfaced on social media that showed Nigerian youths being harassed by the SARS with their cars taken from them and the victims whisked away. One of which aggravated the campaign was a young man who was allegedly killed and abandoned by the men of SARS in Delta state, his Lexus SUV driven away.
A video shows men of the SARS allegedly arresting a man and his sister because they drove in a benz.
A tweet from singer, Wizkid, directly hits at President Mohammadu Buhari who tweeted a get-well soon message to the US president, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania on contracting COVID-19.
“I wish US President, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, quick and full recovery from Covid-19,” President Buhari’s tweet reads.
Wizkid replied the tweet with: “Donald trump is not your business! Old man! Police/Sarz still killing Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something! Nothing concern u for America! Face your country !!”
