#EndSARS campaign is still trending across social media space, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Kaduna has reportedly arrested Moses Motoni, a staff of BudgIT Nigeria, for an offense not known to him.
His arrest comes a day after the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris Kpotum, gave an order to reorganize SARS operations across Nigeria following social media outcry calling for a total scrapping of the controversial unit.
Mr. Motoni, Project Tracking Officer of BudgIT, was arrested in Kaduna State by some unidentified SARS personnel who disguised as delivery men from DHL Nigeria, BreezeReporters learnt.
According to BudgIT, Motoni had been put under SARS’ radar under the instruction of Senator Mohamed Sani, representing Niger South Senatorial District of Niger State. Mr. Motoni was closely tracked after participating in a sensitization program in Bida, Niger State.
”SARS officers have traumatised Moses Motoni, our officer, and his mother is crying. His hands and legs are cuffed and he’s currently on his way to Abuja, BudgIT claims in a Tweet.
Motoni was said to have been denied bail and the police barred anyone from seeing him.
It was reported that Senator Sani had invited Mr. Motoni to his house for a meeting after the sensitization at Bida, but Mr. Motoni declined the invitation and headed to Kaduna State where he was eventually arrested.
Mr. Motoni was initially detained at Metro Police Station, Enugu Road, Kaduna, but he is being transported to the SARS headquarters in Abuja.
