R&B Nigerian singer, Praiz has spoken out after he was arrested by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives yesterday in Lagos.
The X3M Music signee was said to be on his way to the end of year party held by his record label when he was stopped and arrested by the police officials along Lekki-Epe expressway.
Replying to the incident, Praiz called on the police authorities to #EndSARS.
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.”
