Actor, Adeyin Ben Blessing has taken to Instagram to recount his ordeal with men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) who tortured him on Boxing day, December, 26.
According to Adeyin, he had headed for office, when they stopped him for interrogations, which eventually led to tortures, despite revealing his identity.
In a post shared via his Instagram page, Adeyin said he was forced to a P.O.S spot, where they asked him to withdraw a sum of N60,000 or they will waste his life.
The actor said he was able to withdraw N55,000, from which they gave him N2000 to get himself home.
