A blog reader, Ukenke, has narrated his experience in Rivers State capital, Port Harcourt after kidnappers disguised as policemen took him away today.

Fake SARS in PH

Earlier today I was blocked by a toyota camry along Eliozu bypass, the occupants of the vehicle in SARS uniform asked me for my particulars and drivers license which I gave to them. They said I didn't park properly so I should come dow which I obeyed as I opened the car to get back in one of entered the passenger side, he brought out a pistol and ordered me to go to the back seat and if I make any move they will shoot me and label me a cultist.

One of them drove my car, they took me to a forest at igbo etche road parked the car and blind folded me to another area of the bush.

They later removed the blind fold and asked me where I work, I replied that I am a freelancer so I work whenever I am hired. They asked me my account balance and my last withdrawal which I told them. I logged on to 1st bank online and showed the 51k in the account. They asked why I don't have money in the account? I told them that I haven't worked recently.

They searched my bag and no ID was found except my DPR passport which I explained that sometimes I may be required to work in a swamp as I'm involved in lifting and handling operation

After about 2hours I was blindfolded back to the road and advised to go left to where my car is and never look back.

I am alive, nothing was taken from me but I'm scared. They probably would have killed me thinking I have money.
