I left SARS three years ago, says Yomi Sars

Abayomi Ekundayo, better known as Yomi Sars, couldn’t perform at Olamide Live in Concert last Sunday due to the growing frustration of Nigerians towards the activities of the SARS operatives.

But Yomi Sars told Sunday Scoop he didn’t feel bad that he was not able to perform because he knew the situation of things.


He said, “I don’t feel bad that I couldn’t perform because there was nothing anyone could do about it. Olamide did his best and it wasn’t his fault that I didn’t perform. The crowd is not to blame as well because it was a tense situation.

“The people at the concert venue were happy when they saw me. Even top personalities who came to the concert told me they came to watch my performance and felt bad that I didn’t perform. I was there from the beginning until the end. After OLIC, I still went to the beach with friends and no one attacked me. I’m not bordered by the comments on social media.”

“When you search SARS on Google, it brings out my picture. But I left SARS three years ago. We are the team that arrested the notorious kidnapper, Evans. Look at what I went through on Sunday because people know me as Yomi Sars. But I don’t regret being a policeman; it has brought me to the limelight.

“It is not easy in the music industry, especially as a police officer doing music as well. You know music must not affect my police work. I only do music whenever I have breaks,” he added.
