Governor of Nasarawa State,Abdullahi Sule has shared his view on the ongoing #EndSARS Protest making rounds globally, stating that officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, were trained to confront some situations the ordinary policemen cannot face.
The Governor laments on the dissolution of the police unit, saying it should have been reformed instead.
“I got to understand that the SARS officers were actually well-trained officers to be able to face armed robbers and to be able to face those kinds of crimes which other policemen will not be able to do”.
“So, what is going to be the replacement for SARS now that you have discarded it? Even in some of these southern states, there were so many other places where SARS had been useful. But just like any other part of our system, you would find the bad eggs that have done something wrong.”
“That is why some governors were asking for the reforming of the SARS. Instead of throwing the bathing water and the baby, go ahead and reform what is wrong,” he said.
Oyogist.com further learned that the Governor specifically pointed out that SARS officials were handy in combating armed robbery in Nasarawa State.
