- A Nigerian man has cried out after his brother was arrested
- The man revealed that his brother was arrested for driving his mother's car
- He called unto the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abayomi Shogunle, to resolve the issue
A young Nigerian man identified as Nick Billion has called out officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad after they allegedly arrested his brother for no legit reason other than driving a car.
The man who shared his story on Twitter, stated that officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) arrested his brother because he was driving a Toyota Camry 2009. He claimed that the Camry belongs to their mother.
Nick Billion called on the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abayomi Shogunle, to do something about the issue with his SARS officers.
He said: "Hello @YomiShogunle is it a crime to do a legitimate business and be successful in Nigeria? Because SARS is holding my brother and his only crime is that he was driving a Toyota Camry 2009 which is owned by my mum. Guys please retweet till @YomiShogunle does something."
The irony about the accusation in the story is the fact that the officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad are supposed to prevent robbery and arrest robbers.
