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.

Petition to: House of Representatives And The Senate : National Assembly - Federal Republic of Nigeria

The National Assembly, End SARS’ National Criminal Operation And Reform the Police

Your Excellency,

Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives,

copy: Senate President 

The Senate House, Federal Republic Of Nigeria

The activities of the SARS across Nigeria is tainting the image of the Nigerian Police. We have been following up on diverse cases for over 2 years now and must say that it has since escalated to an alarming rate. 

The public feedback on socialmedia as well as editorials in the print media is alarming to the point that it seems we have the very same criminals in the society in the Police as we speak and this calls for the declaration of a State Of Emergency on our Policing.

On behalf of Nigerians under siege and those who are not lucky enough to survive the onslaught of the SARS, may We humbly ask that you address this sir? It will go a long way for citizens to know you are listening and that they have at least representation at the helms that understand the duty of care our leaders owe to the people. Our hearts are broken as we speak with the feedbacks received across Nigeria on SARS’ illegal and exploitative activities with impunity.

Nigerians are now demanding that the SARS be scrapped and the Police reformed.  

Thank you for always having the ears for ordinary citizens like us. Do accept the assurances of our high regards and best wishes.

 

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

The National Assembly End SARS National Criminal Operation & Reform the Police
