A real estate manager and haulage consultant, Afeez Mojeed, has alleged that he was brutalized and robbed of over N41million by a team of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) headed Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abba Kyari.

He made his claims during his testimony before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and related matters.

The 38-year-old said his ordeal began at his home in Victory Estate, Ajah on October 18, 2014, but that following the persistence of his lawyer; he was arraigned and released on bail on October 31, 2014, after spending 14 days in police custody.

The petitioner said at first, he refused to open the door, thinking they were armed robbers.

When he summoned courage and opened it, four armed men in mufti pounced on him.

They knocked him to the ground and slapped his expectant wife countless times for asking what the problem was. After chaining his legs and handcuffing both hands behind his back, he testified that one of the men pulled off his wedding ring from his finger and took his wristwatch from the table.

The petitioner said the men also collected several documents from him.
