A member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Akin Alabi has moved a motion before the lower chambers asking for an immediate dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
Akin Alabi made this call following the widespread outcry, grudges and online protest against SARS by Nigerians, especially the youths on the continual brutality and incessant killing of innocent Nigerian citizens always perpetrated by this unit of the Nigeria Police force (NPF).
Alabi, who is also a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said there is enough evidence in the public domain to proscribe SARS immediately, warning that the unit has committed enough atrocities.
In his assertions, he said SARS operatives have become so lawless that even the Inspector General of Police, IGP, can no longer contain their excesses, decrying how Nigerians now harbour untold fear of the deadly and corrupt unit.
He said, “Policing in Nigeria continues to fall short of modern practices where citizens should be treated with utmost respect and decorum, therefore making it very difficult for an average citizen to truly trust that the police are their friends.”
