Enugu State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has urged the youths of the state to press further their demand for the end of police brutality in Nigeria.

He recently revealed that the solemn #EndSARS protests require prayers and a minute silence for the departed souls of victims of extra-judicial killings in the country.

According to him, protesting youths deserve to be praised for their peaceful conduct thus far, but they should remain law-abiding.

He then vowed that his own government will intervene and look into the demands of the protests accordingly.

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.
