SARS Official Dismissed For Extorting #5000 From Road User

Inspector Charles Omotosho, an operative of the Federal Special Anti-Robery Squad (FSARS), who extorted N5,000 from some road users in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, has been dismissed.

A Twitter user, Princess Ife, on May 16, claimed that Omotosho threatened to shoot at them except they paid a ‘ransom’ of N5000.

She tweeted: “With my encounter today, it is safe to say SARS are armed robbers. Was going for a shoot in Ikorodu today and armed member of SARS pulled us over and made us pay for no reason. Threatening they were going to waste our lives. I made a transfer so that they can be traced.”
