Dolapo Badmus, the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer has written an open letter to SARS asking the bad eggs in the police unit to stop the unlawful arrest of well dressed young men walking on the street with claims that they are “Yahoo Yahoo boys”.
According to Dolapo, a lot of the well dressed young men are
“hustling” up and down to make ends meet.
Read her open letter below.
OPEN LETTER TO SARS OPERATIVES.
Bad eggs within the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS),
please be informed that not all good looking young men out
there are “yahoo yahoo” boys,
a lot of them are young Nigerians “hustling” up and down to make ends meet.
Kindly note that some young upcoming stars believe that weaving,
plaiting and designing their hairs rastafarianly is
another way to be accepted as an entertainer
(even though most times it doesn’t appeal to me).

Some couple of days ago, I saw the son of a
high ranking officer with a dreadlock hair style,
does that Indicate that he’s a fraudster?! Hell “No”,
that young man is well trained and brought up,
he’s just shooting his shot in the entertainment world.
It will therefore be highly unfair for any security agent
to arrest him under the guise of being a yahoo boy.

Dear colleagues in SARS,
can we do more in combating violent crimes?!
Can we take a clue from the IGP’s Intelligence Response Team
whose main aim has been to rid the nation of criminal elements?
This team has done a lot to protect our nation,
they always sacrifice their comfort and sleep !
By so doing they’ve been able to abort violent crimes
such as kidnapping, armed robberies etc.
They have not only rescued victims but made arrests
(Evans, Offa robbery etc).
Dear SARS we appreciate the ones among you doing what
is right while we advise the bad eggs to take a clue from
IRT team and stop causing pains to legit young men and
Please note that it is not right to accost anyone on
the road and start checking his or her phone,
respect people’s privacy and rights!…
God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria,
God bless Nigeria Police Force.
