One of the suspected hoodlums hired to attack #EndSARS protesters in Abuja has naively exposed those that allegedly hired him and others to unleash violence on the demonstrators.
The hoodlum exposed their alleged sponsors on tape while having a chat with a man at the Unity Square, Abuja, where they had convened.
It was obvious from the viral social media video that the suspect did not know that he was being recorded.
The hoodlum, who revealed that he had once suffered SARS brutality, however, said that he agreed to the job because of the money they were promised.
“See wetin SARS do me for hand,” the suspected hoodlum said in pidgin English, adding that, “Na the money I dey follow na….God punish them (SARS)” when asked why he agreed to do the job.
Asked how much he was paid, he said: “them never pay, but them go still pay us, so far na them chatter our motor”.
Asked who chattered the vehicle that brought them, he responded: “They are around…na APC people na”
But when the person he was chatting with pressed him further to reveal the identity of the alleged sponsors, he said: “Both the PDP and APC are together.”
Some of the youths seen in the background of the video were carrying placards and wearing T-shirts with the inscription “we support SWAT”.
SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics Team) is the new squad recently announced to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
