The former Vice President during the Obasanjo regime of 1999 and 2017 and the Presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Alh. Atiku Abubakar has bemoaned the nefarious activities of the Special Anti – Robbery Squad (SARS) in the country.
In a tweet message @atiku, the Turaki of Adamawa noted that this unit of the Nigerian Police was set up purposely to confront such violent crimes as armed robbery, kidnapping and other related crimes in the country.
”However, the unit has today morphed into an oppressor of the Nigerian masses who strive everyday for a better life. I strongly condemn their cruel actions against our peple, and the (Federal) Government to rise to the occasion and nip this monstrosity in the bud with the seriousness it deserves,” he tweeted.
Atiku opined that it was expedient that the activities of the unit were reviewed to ensure that the rogue elements were excised from the unit and for sanity to return to its operations.
