“I just ended a very violent verbal altercation with SARS officers who accused me of harassing them. It was a 45 min SHOWDOWN in front of @ecobank_nigeria in Badore, Ajah. I asked everyone to film it.”
“It all started as my artist told me at a certain junction in Badore, Ajah he is always profiled because of his nice car and outfits as a “Yahoo Boy”. He is not a criminal Angry face My artist @iamwealth9ja and my son @Richkjtmusic went to a studio this morning.”
“When we left the studio for a listening session we got in the car & boom at the junction SARS pulled @iamwealth9ja aside. They visibly caused fear for @Richkjtmusic my son who is American and almost dialed @USinNigeria for his protection. They ordered us out! #EndSARS”

@iamwealth9ja. He also demanded to search my bag saying I was hiding DRUGS! I told him he needed a search warrant cos I know my CIVIL RIGHTS Angry #EndSARS”
