EndSARS Protests

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has come out to pledge that the police would not allow a repeat of the #EndSARS protests in Nigeria again.

Adamu recently revealed that the police are prepared to fight any group planning to cause a breakdown of law and order in Nigeria.

According to him, the protest was very violent and was against the peaceful protest that is allowed in our constitution.

He added that peaceful protests have a place in Nigeria, but the #EndSARS protests were far from peaceful.

His words, β€œWe will never allow this type of #EndSARS protests again, it was violent. Peaceful protest is allowed in our constitution. When these rallies started peacefully, we provided security for them.

β€œWe were moving with them to make sure they were not molested by any group of people and it was going on well until it turned violent.

β€œWhen it turned violent, they then attacked the people that were even giving them protection. So, we shall never allow any violent protest in this country again. When you talk of peaceful protests, yes, it is allowed but violent protests, never.”

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.
