OVERVIEW OF: ‘Why We Can Not End SARS’ -Senate President, Ahmad Lawan
The Senate President of Nigeria, Ahmad Lawan has kicked against the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
He made this known in Abuja, on Wednesday, October 7, as lawmakers deliberated a motion on the recent extrajudicial killings carried out by the security personnel.
“I think that this is the situation that should be properly investigated. Those involved in recent incident should be arrested and prosecuted. The law should take its due course. This is not acceptable.
Nigerians need to know what happened to those who have killed Nigerians. There are good people and bad people in SARS. Scrapping of agencies when you have mistakes may not be the best position. Rule of law should be put in place. If you scrap SARS, you lose the chance of getting those doing well to continue to do well.” he said
