‘Police officers arrested Praiz, not SARS’


When it was reported that musician, Praiz, was arrested by SARS officials, it circulated like wildfire.


But the Lagos State Police Command has now given their own account of what transpired.

According to the Lagos State Police Command Spokesperson, SP Chike Oti, Praiz was driving along the Lekki-Epe expressway at top speed and this caused police officers to stop him to carry out a stop and search. But as soon as he stopped and they began questioning him, the police claimed he immediately brought out his camera and began filming them while shouting at the top of his voice at them.

He further revealed that it was police officers and not SARS officials who took Praiz to the station. The police spokesperson said the issue had been resolved and Praiz had been released.
