A soldier who has been fighting for Nigeria’s unity has expressed anger after his cousin was reportedly killed by SARS.
A Nigerian soldier deployed to fight Boko Haram insurgents has taken to social media to accuse the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of torturing his cousin to death while he was busy fighting for the peace of the nation.
The Nigerian soldier using the Twitter handle, @jassjegs, said SARS officers arrested and tortured his cousin to death after alleging that he was a yahoo boy, only to later change the story by accusing the deceased of a being a cultist.
However after the mother of the deceased couldn’t pay the N60,000 bail for the release of her child, the soldier alleged that his cousin was tortured to death.
He tweeted: “While I was busy fighting for the peace of my country #SARS were busy torturing my cousin till Death. Got a shocking news entering into town now. I think am done with this country.
According to what I heard. They were picked up at about 8:20pm by #SARS took them to custody that they are yahoo boys later said they are cult members tortured the hell out of them asking till the next day. His mother went to the station they ask her to go bring 60K to bail
