Ex lawmaker, Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa has come out to beg the Federal Government to start the process of police reform to end the ongoing #EndBadGovernance and #EndSARS protests.

He recently revealed this via a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Umuahia on Saturday.

According to him, the peaceful protests might become a national crisis soon if nothing is done about the cries of the people.

He added that the government should act fast and responsibly to end the agitations and take real steps to appease the people.

His words, “Government should act fast and responsibly to end the agitations. It should take cogent steps to yield to the yearnings of the protesters.

“It is a bad omen for any government to allow aggrieved youths to continue to protest on the streets for days.

“Recall that the Arab Spring, which brought down autocratic regimes in some Arab nations, began this way with aggrieved youths.”

“The Federal Government should address ASUU’s demands because lecturers are making tremendous contribution to nation building.”

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.
