Nigerian rapper, Ikechukwu has revealed that he was kidnapped last night, September 4th by Special anti-robbery squads (SARS) operatives who drained him of his ATM balance.
The star recounted his experience with the SARs operatives as he revealed he was taken to an unknown place in Lagos Island where he was asked to withdraw the last balance from his account. Ikechukwu went on to reveal that they were fully armed and threatened to kill him if he doesn’t cooperate with them.
Ikechukwu shared this via his Instagram page where he went on to add that he would have shared a video he recorded immediately after the incident but it was just too sad for him to do that. He said: “I was kidnapped by sars lastnight. Two mins away from my house, taken to lagos island and made to exhaust my atm allowance or i would be killed and no one would know. Not by armed robbers. But when u are robbed and they are armed fully, 5 ak-47’s. Blows to the head and bundled into a vehicle. Isn’t it the same thing. And then after you will now tell me our government is working. Things are in place. Bla bla. Let me tell u now straight up. I dont care who you are, if you are rolling solo in this town and sars get you. Day or night. If they get ur phone. Its over for you. They dont have names or numbers on their uniforms. They literally said to me “na you burn this our hilux here yesterday abii”. Acting like they didnt know who I was and were gonna rope me in anything they felt or do with me what they would. After collecting all the money in lagos island they start laughing telling me i’m too stubborn that when will i introduce them to don jazzy. Oh so u know me. One even bragged about working alot with wazobiafm. Thanx for that info at least now i have a point to start my own investigation. I could’ve been shot and left in the dark space on that dark road. No ID no phone. Who would ID me. Who would be looking for me for days? Afterall my people saw me enter uber heading home. On the island. Shey i’m safe. Good morning. Its a good day to be alive. I don’t even know what hashtag to put sef. Its ok. I recorded a video initially from when I got home last night but it was too long and it made me cry again. So i just said lemme just yan straight no need for in the moment. Just the facts. We are not safe. End of story. Know as u dey take move.”Photo Credit: Getty
