Nigeria’s Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo has come out to blast the shooting of #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.

He recently revealed that the protest against police brutality and improvement of lives of Nigerians has been very peaceful, therefore the shooting and murder of unarmed Nigerians will never suppress public anger and frustration.

According to him, Buhari should immediately restrain the military and other security agencies from using force as a way of ending the crises, because it is a very wrong move.

He added that even if huge harm has already been done on the citizens, the president should step in quickly before it gets out of hand.

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.
