Victim of SARS excesses cries out for justice
Imafidon Osagbakhomwan a victim of what commentators described as excesses of the State Anti – Robbery Squad (SARS) has cried for justice.
He narrates that the operatives acting on a petition by his cousin alleging false allegation, he was arrested.
Consequently, a search was carried out on his home with nothing incriminating found.
But bent on nailing him, his new Toyota Corrolla car was seized by the operatives and rammed into electric poles in the village as they drove in a commando style.
Not only has the car been badly damaged, the electric concrete poles are broken pulling down the cables which has cut off power supply to the village.
Osagbakhomwen alleged that now documents of his properties that were in the car, can no longer be found.
He asserts that he is a responsible, hard working and law abiding citizen. “I don’t do crime.”
According to him, he feels oppressed, threatened, unsafe, and not sure of what would happen next hence he decided to cry out.
Among witnesses, Mary Abetu and Osayomore Ugiagbe said that the operatives drove the car dangerously until it was rammed into the electric poles.
They thanked God that nobody was standing on their path otherwise the story would have been more devastating.
Osagbakhomwan is a native of Uhie village km – 12, Sapele road, Ikpoba – Okha local government council area, Edo State where the incident occurred.
When contacted, the Edo State Police Command spokes person, Chidi Nwabuzor said the operatives acted on a petition against Osagbakhomwan.
But unfortunately, the accident happened as he confirmed that nothing incriminating was found when the home of Osagbakhomwan was searched.
However, the Police is handling the situation to ensuring that peace prevails on all sides, Nwabuzor assured.
The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo recently ordered holistic overhaul of the SARS due to citizens out cry against its human rights violation and abuse.
