Entertainment lawyer, Folake Falana has come out to ask Governor Sanwo Olu to compile the list of dismissed officers in Lagos State amid the ongoing #EndSARS protests.

In a recent letter, she revealed that since the people no longer trust the government, it will be wise for Sanwo Olu to present the measures taken to reform the police clearly.

According to her, a list of dismissed police officers showing their details including their divisions, the officer identification numbers, offences they were dismissed for, and when they will be charged and tried should be available on the state’s website.

She added that their trials must be publicized as well like the Oputa panel to guarantee transparency.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Nigerian Police Force unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi. Since 2012, SARS has come under controversy for being linked to acts of extortion, torture, framing and blackmail.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad was founded in 1992 by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda. The major reason SARS was formed was when Col. Rindam, a Nigerian Army Colonel was killed by police officers at a checkpoint in Lagos.

SARS is one of the 14 units in the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department which was established to detain, investigate and prosecute people involved in crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping and other forms of crimes.

During its formation the Special Anti-Robbery Squad was known to operate covertly. SARS operatives were not allowed to wear police uniform, publicly carry guns or have walkie-talkies. They were given unmarked vehicles with sometimes no license plates or private plate numbers during duty.
