Man feared dead after being beaten by SARS officers for refusing a phone check . . There is currently confusion in Ogba,Lagos, following the assault of a young man, yesterday, by some SARS officers. . . According to eyewitnesses, the incident happened at Haruna Bus stop. It was gathered that the victim had just stepped out of an eatery when he was accosted by some SARS officers who demanded a phone check, but he refused. . . Angered by his refusal, they descended heavily on him, as seen in the video above. According to an eyewitness, “They demanded to see his phone, which he refused. The next thing was them harassing him and tied him all up. . . I heard he died though, but not sure about it. Another source said he's in the hospital as those in the area didn't allow SARS officials drop him when they noticed he was convulsing, so they took him to a private hospital.”
