There has been an increase in Police brutality and harassment in Nigeria recently. Rapper and actor, Ikechukwu has added his voice to the list of celebrities calling for an end to police brutality.
In a post on his Instagram page, Ikechukwu warned of the outcome of SARS harassment, if he ever encountered it. Sharing a heartbreaking video of SARS officials harassing and beating a man who had supposedly refused to have them search his phone, he condemned the officers for terrorizing citizens, rather than protecting and serving them.
In fury, the rapper had added that the day a SARS officer tries to attack him, he might end up dying because he will “disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun.”
The post reads:
“When i say this i really mean it, the day these type of individuals run into me i might end up dying that day. Truth is how much humility and calm are u supposed to have? Even if we want to believe that God is using the situation to test us, will he test us to our death and demise?”
“For what reason is such an individual wearing the uniform of one who is supposed to protect and serve the same person he is bludgeoning and raping of his rights in broad daylight so bold and so arrogant with slaps to follow and insults. Then more planking.”
Ikechukwu continued: “My God i beg u please cos i will disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun. I swear on it. If u powers that be cant do what is necessary then step the fuck outta office and outta the way and allow people who are about change and fairness and rules and regulations and proper protocols and due process take ur place.”
“For u are the tumbleweed and the winds are high , the storm that in brewing is nigh, overspill is inevitable, and the drops i feel upon my umbrella. This rain shall pour and it will be torrential. Nuffsaid #ENDSARS.”
