Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made a case for the swift review of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
The special force which is an arm of the the police department has become notorious for perpetrating acts of criminality and human right abuses in recent times.
In a tweet on Saturday evening, Atiku lamented how the unit has deteriorated into an absolute oppressor of the Nigerian masses.
The Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections in condemning the actions of SARS, wondered why their activities have remained unabated.
The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the @PoliceNG was set up to confront violent crimes such as armed robbery, kidnapping and other related crimes. However, the unit has today morphed into an oppressor of the Nigerian masses who strive every day for a better life.
Reports of intimidation, harassment and outright extortion by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have continued unabated. I strongly condemn their cruel actions against our people, and I urge the government to rise to the occasion and nip this monstrosity in the bud with the seriousness it deserves.
It is expedient that the activities of SARS are reviewed to ensure that the rogue elements are excised from the unit and sanity returned to its operations.
