An eyewitness by the name of Meshack Uyi, has accused the Men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, that they forcefully took bags of Garri from traders at Gunpoint, while Soldiers looked on, in a popular market in Rivers State.
The bewildered young man, claimed to have witnessed the unfair treatment meted out to the poor traders in the guise of clearing the road.
He revealed that the Men had charged at the traders, taking the Garri and absconded with their loot.

“I was completely bewildered to see men of the F-SARS cart away 4 bags of Garri from two traders at the popular Mbiama market at about 12:21pm today.
Three of them jumped down from the white Hilux van in a commando style, charging at the two traders in the guise of clearing the road. Rather than clearing the road, it was the traders 4 bags of Garri they hurriedly threw to their van.
Not knowing what their intention was, the traders ran to them to demand money for their goods but the F-SARS men warned them not to come closer than they have or they will be dealt with accordingly. “Una no dey fear”! “Woman, you won challenge us abi”? they charged and zoomed off!
Sadly, their were Soldiers at the very spot (checkpoint) where this incident happened, watching. All they could do was to laugh!
I managed to capture them at a distance while zooming off with their loot.
Please zoom picture 1 and see for yourself. You can see a lady and two men going after them. It is really shameful.
Madame, if your F-SARS husband bring Garri come house today say him buy am from Mbiama market, Abeg show am this post! Na thief them thief the Garri oo!”
