The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adewusi, has joined the long list of Nigerians to share their unsavoury experience with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
In a series of tweets on Monday, the paramount traditional ruler recounted how his 25-year-old daughter fell victim of the antics of men of the now-disbanded SARS.
“She was on her way to the airport when she was stopped and terribly ransacked and surrounded by fully armed Plain clothes policemen in a bus,” he said.
Tweeting further, the monarch said that the only ‘crime’ his daughter committed was to be in possession of a laptop and that she was detained for over 30 minutes undergoing thorough questioning.
While saluting the doggedness of Nigerian youths who form the bulk of those protesting across the country, the Ooni believes that this peaceful expression by these Nigerians should be seen as the beginning of greater things to come in Nigeria.
