Review SARS Now – Atiku Condemns ‘Cruel Actions’ of SARS Against People
Nwolu Obiajulu

Following a social media outcry over the actions of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria police force, former Vice-President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar has asked government to review the operations of SARS.

Atiku made the call in a tweet on his official Twitter handle, while weighing in on the #ENDSARS campaign on social media on Saturday.

On Saturday, the #ENDSARS campaign was invigorated by a viral video of an alleged shooting of a man by suspected members of SARS in Delta State.

Reacting to the video and the outcry that followed, the former vice-president said it was important that the activities of SARS are reviewed to ensure that the rogue elements are excised from the unit and sanity returned to its operations.

He said, “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,” he said.

“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.”
