Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, has condemned the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The unit of the Police has been allegedly harassing and killing Nigerians.
The Turaki Adamawa reacted angrily via his Twitter handle on Saturday.
“@PoliceNG was set up to confront violent crimes such as armed robbery, kidnapping and other related crimes. However, the unit has today morphed into an oppressor of the Nigerian masses who strive every day for a better life.
“Reports of intimidation, harassment and outright extortion by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have continued unabated.
“I strongly condemn their cruel actions against our people, and I urge the government to rise to the occasion and nip this monstrosity in the bud with the seriousness it deserves.
“It is expedient that the activities of SARS are reviewed to ensure that the rogue elements are excised from the unit and sanity returned to its operations”, Atiku tweeted.
In the same vein, Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries, on Saturday, called for the proscription of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
Suleman explained that SARS was a disgrace to the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, hence should be proscribed.
In a tweet, the clergyman stressed that some SARS operatives are worse than criminals.
According to the fiery preacher, so many families have been rendered childless due to some trigger happy SARS operatives.
Suleman, however, declared that operatives responsible for killing innocent Nigerians would “reap what they sow.”
He tweeted: “SARS should be proscribed, they are a disgrace to the police force. They are worse than the ‘criminals’ they claim to be against..their trigger-happy nature have rendered mothers childless,sent youths on premature extinction,wasted destinies. They will reap what they sow.”
This is coming at a time when some SARS operatives reportedly killed a man in front of Wetland Hotel, Ughelli in Delta State.
