Residents of Badore in Ajah area of Lagos state witnessed an unexpected drama, when a controversial journalist, Kemi Olunloyo confronted some Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) operatives, accusing them of extorting money from her artiste on three different occasions.
Olunloyo posted videos on her Instagram page that captured the ugly exchange that occurred in front of Ecobank in the Badore, Ahaj area of the state.
The journalist said the SARS operatives stationed in the area have made it a frequent call to stop and search the car of her artiste, Wealth 9ja, on a weekly basis.
Olunloyo said it was the reason she decided to follow him to the studio and sees what plays out when he comes across the security operatives.
When they got there, she was seen engrossed in a heated argument with a SARS officer whom she identified as Officer Kelechi as onlookers taped the drama.
Olunloyo said one of the officers accused her of harassing him after she vowed to have them arrested for extorting Nigerians youths.
Officer Kelechi was personally recording her as she was criticizing the SARS men for trying to search her bag without warrant.
Sharing the video on her social media oage, she wrote:
“When we left the studio for a listening session we got in the car & boom at the junction SARS #PoliceNG pulled @iamwealth9ja aside. They visibly caused fear for @Richkjtmusic my son who is American and almost dialed @usinnigeria for his protection. They ordered us out! Then they claim I was harassing them.
“Officer Kelechi taping me was the leader of the team. His beef was that I harassed him and lied that police ever EXTORTED @iamwealth9ja. He also demanded to search my bag saying I was hiding DRUG! I told him he needed a search warrant cos I know my CIVIL RIGHTS,” She wrote.

Alot of us want to be funny about this Aunty Kemi's video. If not for anything, we should at least give her some kudos. She's standing up against the ill treatment faced by people in the hands of SARS. This is not time for trolling!
Kemi Olunloyo Aunty Kemi
