Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner, Laycon has revealed he was once a victim of the excesses of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, otherwise called SARS.
Laycon’s revelation came following the heightened calls for the ban of SARS with the #ENDSARS hashtag the talk of almost every Nigerian on social media.
Laycon who spoke during a recent interview, revealed he was harassed on his way to record a track after securing his first record deal.
“I was harassed by SARS the day after I got signed. What saved me was that I bought a ThisDay newspaper that morning that had the story on my signing. I showed them my pictures and then they let me go. But not before searching through my phone” He said.
“it’s painful that a young man my age is afraid to go out with his phone, laptop or tablet for fear of police harassment and brutality. In today’s era of technology being used for literally everything, this is very sad and I don’t understand it” he added.
