Nigerians are calling on the President for immediate intervention SARS activities in the Western and Eastern parts of the country. The recent activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have led to many unpleasant experiences by many citizens.
After the call for it’s banned, which was championed by many renowned personnel in Nigeria, from celebrities to politicians and even popularly clergymen especially Apostle Johnson Suleman.
Well, reacting to the news and the constant pleading by the good people of Nigeria, the President of Nigeria has given out orders that the activities of this special police force be banned for the main time. This forfeiture of activities according to what was posted by the verified twitter handle of the Nigeria Presidency, will only affect their routine search, unauthorized patrol in mufti, and many others.
See the post below.
Apart from the ban, Presidency gives citizens permission to do these two things.
- Make a Complain: Unlike before when we come online to cry for SARS maltreatment, now one can lay a legal complaint against any form of illegal confrontation by the SARS officials.
- Call The Police Emergency Number: A body has been provided to take care of any reports of Another SARS maltreatment. This you can access using the two numbers provided below.
- 080 5700 0001
- 080 5700 003
I believe this Will go a long way to reduce their harassment, knowing quite well that people are watching and maybe consequences await one who does otherwise. This might not really be the best way to handle the situation, but it is a starting point towards tackling this societal menace.
This how many Nigeria’s reacted to the new development, some where in favor while others think the President should have done more.
@Chibuike “Every citizen owns the right to life, liberty, and happiness—but in Nigeria, the very body tasked with ensuring the protection of life and property is the body denying these rights to our citizens. Enough is Enough. The time to end SARS brutality is now! We’re tired ooo.”
@Walta “Isn’t this like the 5th time y’all have banned Fsars from carrying out routine patrols? After a few weeks, they go back to the streets and continue their criminal activities.”
@Paulada “But still not enough with dis message sending through social media. Let de president come out live on TV stations, radio & alongside de social media network to announce dis same message here with his mouthto all Nigerians both u and abroad. Enough is Enough of total stupidity.”
@Eluku “I think they have their uses too as the IGP said but the problem is indiscipline, inability to stay within their duty and lack of oversight, Did they all get an order to behave in their silly manners because their shameful act cut across this republic.”
@Josehp “I hope this is well thought out and it’s not just reactive and in a bid to play to the gallery. I hope we are not being bound to the philistines cos this could mean a decline in the level of security of lives and property and free access for criminals to carry out operations.”
