Nigerian rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, known professionally as Ruggedman Wednesday slammed the assistant commissioner of Police, Yomi Shogunle, for allegedly misrepresenting his position on police brutality and perceived illegal activities of Nigerian Police’s Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).
Shogunle had earlier shared a photo of Ruggedman with a SARS officer and claimed that Ruggedman, one of the most vocal critiques and campaigner for the proscription of the squad, has now turned around to join those calling for SARS to be reformed instead.
The rapper, however, insisted that he has not changed his position.
“Officer Yomi Shogunle I have heard about how incompetent and dubious you are but this disgraceful act of yours takes the cake,” Ruggedman said in an Instagram post.
“This baseless and fabricated post of yours just goes to show you are a shameless liar and a disgrace to the Nigerian police force.”
The #EndSARS campaign began on social media to protest the activities of the police unit which have been accused of extortion, harassment, robbery, intimidation and extra-judicial killings.
