Rauf Olaniyan, the deputy governor of Oyo State, has revealed how some operatives of the recently proscribed Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) extorted money from him in various currencies including naira, dollars and pounds in Lagos.

However, Mr Olaniyan had last week declared his support for EndSARS protesters.

The deputy governor, while addressing the protesters last week, said that he was a victim of police brutality twice.

Mr Olaniyan, who spoke at the weekend, recounted how the special unit of the police collected money from him without being found guilty of any offence.

He said that on a particular occasion, while he was rushing to catch a flight, SARS operatives took all the monies he had on him (both local and foreign) and that even an appeal to them to spare him some to use when he gets to his destination fell on deaf ears.

He added that only reforms of the police will help address all the anomalies in the system.

“I was a victim twice, once at Ikeja roundabout and at Ojota ramp when you want to negotiate around Ikorodu road to the express.

“Ask my driver. We were ransacked there. What only saved me was the fact that I had some money with me. I had to part with over N100,000. It was terrible.

“That of Ikeja, they took pounds sterlings, they took dollar notes, all the money I had because I was travelling. I was eager to go and catch my flight, they emptied me.

Please stop talking Bullshit. If SARS had directed their attention only to you politicians, there would have been no need for this Protest. We the People would have celebrated SARS. You Politicians are really the criminals SARS should have dealt with. You guys are the ones without shame and conscience looted public Funds and practically destroy the future of nigerian youths. How i wish the Protesters can get hold of People like Diezani Alison-Madueke & Co. to teach them the lessons of their lives for the Evil they did to Nigeria. Anyway the Wrath of God will certainly visit them anywhere they are. And believe me the Fire of God will certainly consume them all one after the other. Wicked souls
