Ex Heads of State have come out to hail President Muhammadu Buhari for addressing Nigerians yesterday amid the #EndSARS protests.

The former leaders recently revealed that such a move by PMB reaffirms his commitment to respecting the fundamental rights of citizens.

According to them, peaceful protest is very much allowed in the constitution and the Governors should be praised for tackling the demands of the protesters and doing everything possible to check the excesses of those who perpetrated violent acts and conduct.

The ex Heads of State then expressed their condolences to the bereaved families of civilians, policemen, and soldiers killed as a result of careless shootings.

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.
