The National Assembly End SARS National Criminal Operation & Reform the Police
For over 10 years now the growing criminal activities of the Nigeria Police with emphasis on the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) across Nigeria has been a topical discourse, until recently when it took a deadly turn. Thousands of reports pour in daily on the activities of these deadly and lawless bunch (SARS), with evidence backed accusations of extra judicial killings, robberies at gun point and torture. The Nigeria Police set up to protect the people are now a major threat to our society, torturing (youthful) victims with complete impunity while instilling a toxic climate of fear, intimidation and corruption. The socialmedia is awash with eyewitness reports as well as victim accounts of this seeming legal racket across Nigerian states. The pattern of human rights violations where victims are arrested and tortured until they either make a false confession to free themselves and/or be marched to an ATM machine to cough out a huge sum as bribe as a mandatory condition for release. Our youths are now endangered and more cases of extortion, torture and extra judicial killings (after which victims are labeled as cultists or robbers) are on the rise on the daily. There seem to be a huge cover up here and the undersigned citizens call upon the Nigerians Legislature for an immediate intervention. A few Commissioners of Police have been helpful (Case in point Lagos) leading to the apprehension of some of these criminals with subsequent charges by competent courts but there’s a lot more work to be done as more cases surface even as we speak.
