“Today I learnt that the police force needs deep reform and sensitization” – Praiz addresses SARS Arrest



Project Fame” alum Praiz has addressed his arrest by officials attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The singer had been stopped on his way to his record label X3M Music‘s end of the year party, and was taken to the Ajah police station.

The singer’s phone was reportedly smashed as he attempted recording his arrest.

Praiz, on his Instagram, using the hashtag #EndSARS, lamented the actions of the police and asked that they be reformed.

“This is not my official statement,” he said, adding that his statement will be out soon. He wrote:

Anyone that truly knows me well knows i am an easy going , non problematic, happy and co -operative individual.
Well, I’m not here to talk about myself. I am here to address issues that happens in our society everyday.
We live in a society where the government has failed us whether we like it or not. No jobs, fuel scarcity , SARS , Asuu Strike , Nupeng Strike , Name it….. it’s endless .. HARDSHIP… ENDLESS HARDSHIP …. Today I had an encounter that a lot of people go through everyday. People who are heading home after a failed interview, people going home after a night shift , people on their way to get their daily bread but get harassed by people who are the force because of reasons best known to them or maybe because u are a young boy wearing a gold chain or have a beard .
Though I won’t deny the existence of great people in the police force that are ready to listen , I still stand by my opinion which is popular amongst the youth and more#ENDSARS
Today I learnt that the police force needs deep reform and sensitization.
This is not my official statement… my official statement will be out soon
Lastly I will like to thank @aleeygiwa , Mr Etim Godwin from J command for stepping in… #EndSars#NoBePhysicalSomething

    First off, Oga Praiz sorry for your troubles. We do go through more terrible situations from normal ‘forceless’ everyday people even!

    But I love the part of his unofficial statement hashtagged “#NoBePhysicalSomething”. The truth is that we need to #EndEverythingInNigeria. Like #MentalRecaliberation. To me, it seems everything is crazy in 9ja. #IStandWithEmirSanusi, we do need a drug test in Nigeria truly.

    It is unfortunate to admit that we are heading gradually towards something unpalatable. If celebrities become the trendy complainants as it is, hope this ugly trend does not get further and then …. gboaah! I wish we can really take care …

    #PDPSenatorsWalkOut in protest of mass defection? #DemNeverStart. It is a pigeon that is scattering it yet for them for now, they will soon #FlyOut when a fowl steps in.

    More importantly, we need to #EndIndisciplineAndDisorderliness before it is too damn late.
