SARS officer finally sacked over N5,000 extortion

Inspector Charles of the Federal Special Anti-Robery Squad (FSARS) was sacked after his extortion activities came to light following tweets from Princess Ife, who on May 16, claimed that Omotosho threatened to shoot at them, except they paid a ‘ransom’ of N5000. Her tweet read;

“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.”

Three months after the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) of the Police Force promised to investigate the issue and make findings of the investigation public, the SARS officer has been handed his sack letter.

Announcing the dismissal of Omotosho following the police’s investigations, the PCRRU tweeted;
