"Federal Government Should Stop SARS From Killing Innocent Nigerians " - Bukola Saraki 3

Saraki made the call while reacting to a report that some SARS officers allegedly killed a young man in the front of Wetland Hotel, Ughelli in Delta State.

KanyiDaily had reported how the SARS officials allegedly shot the young man, left him for dead, and escaped with his vehicle – a white Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle.

Reacting on his Twitter page, Saraki advised the FG to put a stop to the harassment of citizens by SARS operatives by restructuring the unit for better protection of Nigerians.

“The reports of the continued harassment, illegal arrest, detention and high handedness by rogue cells of the SARS Unit of @PoliceNG against innocent Nigerians – most of them young people – in spite of efforts to reform the Police & raise standards of policing, are disheartening.

“A situation where the officers of @PoliceNG become a threat to the lives and property of the very citizens they swore to protect is condemnable and unacceptable.

“I call on the Federal Government to immediately put a stop to these reprehensible activities and restructure the unit to better perform its lawful duties of safe guarding the lives and property of the Nigerian people.”
