#EndSARS: "Owner of hashtag is being investigated" - Police | WATCH - BellaNaijaJimoh Moshood, the public relations officer of the Nigerian Police Force, has said the person who kicked off the #EndSARS trend is being investigated.

Moshood revealed this during an interview with Channels TV, on Tuesday.

Nigerians had through the #EndSARS hashtag shared experiences of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) violating their human rights.

The stories included experiences of abduction, extortion, and murder.

Moshood, on the other hand, has said Jega Awosanya Segun, who started the hashtag, has been working with “mischievous politicians” and had ulterior motives. He said:

Somebody who had an ulterior motive put up #EndSARS, Nigerians should be mindful because the social media is very porous.

We traced the hashtag and traced it to mischievous politicians that are trying to create problem in the system that SARS is a stumbling block for them to achieve objective in the election and we are investigating this.

The owner of the hashtag is being investigated. We know freedom of expression is the right of every Nigerian and we are taking people up because of that.

It is quite unfortunate, I’m not mentioning any name but this same Jega Awosanya Segun is the owner of the hastag and we have seen his picture with various crop of politicians and we are investigating that for Nigerians to know the reason why.

    Whatever his agenda, the campaign is real. That campaign is legitimate. Investigate his motives if you want but after wards, #EndSARS

    What nonsense is this one talking about? dont deflect from the issue, address the fact that SARS are extorting and intimidating the people they are supossed to be keeping safe. Nigeria police wishes they can wish this away, like if they refuse to address the atrocities that people are alledging they are commiting then they dont exist.

    This Nigerian Police PRO is an embarrassment to the Policing Institution. A complete truth twister and shamless officer. On the few times I have had to listen to him speak to address issues, I shook my head in disbelief and almost swore Nigeria is irredeemable. How can bare faced lies, denials and korokoro defending the indefensible be live on national TV. What impudence, what wanton disregard for the grief and feelings of the people who are victims of that rogue outfit call SARS. I mean it doesnt get worse than this. He may say he is doing his job but Nigerians are not fools not to know what is expected of their police in the 21st century.
    He speaks with the mien of a power drunk half educated person. As if telling us to accept his claims or go to hell. Who will redeem Nigeria with this kind of people at the helm of security affairs? I shudder to imagine the future peopled with the likes of this fellow up there. Every legitimate concern raised by people about the police, he will always find a way to turn it around on the victims.
    Nigeria go better las las.

    Gosh! I’m so mad that I couldn’t even watch the video. Is this guy serious? Like they are investigating who started the hashtag???? I thought they said SARS was created for the protection of the people. As the people no longer require their protection, can’t SARS just end peacefully if some agents don’t have ulterior motives from it’s continuity. This guy is a foolish man and Nigerian is a zoo! If anything happens to that Jega guy, we know where to look now. Just mad here gosh!

    Mr PRO, how about you focus on the problem at hand which is the menace your officers have turned themselves into rather than trying to witch hunt the poor man who must have been a victim at some point and took it upon himself to speak up against innocent citizens being humiliated by your men? This is one of the reasons why I always expect the worst from lower rank police officers. When you have top officers of the force talk in such manner as this, what do you expect from the foot soldiers? Nigeria is just a BIG joke! Definitely not fit to be called a country.
