The Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege has condemned the activities of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) which has led to the deaths of many young Nigerians.
Naija News reports that the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) chased a young Nigerian to his death last month and on Saturday, October 3, it was reported that SARS officials killed another young Nigerian in Delta State, southeast Nigeria.
It was learned that the SARS operatives allegedly shot the young Nigerian in front of Wetland Hotel, Ughelli in Delta State and left the scene, with the development resurrecting the clamour by Nigerians for the department of the Nigeria Police to be shut. Nigerians called for #ENDSARS in a series on tweets on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Saturday.
Reacting to the recent activities of the SARS operatives which led to the death of the young Nigerian, Omo-Agege expressed concerns over the incessant cases of extrajudicial killings, harassment, illegal arrest, and extortion of defenceless citizens by some officials attached to SARS in different parts of Nigeria.
Specifically, the Deputy President of the Senate cited the alleged shooting of a man by operatives of SARS in his constituency in Ughelli, Delta State over the victim’s alleged refusal to allow the operatives to search his phone.
He noted another shooting of a youth in the town by men of the ‘Operation Delta Safe’ over the victim’s alleged refusal to allow the operatives to search his phone to buttress his argument on the need for comprehensive reforms and overhaul of security units in the country.
