A social crusader and President of One Love Foundation, Chief Patrick Eholor has come out to beg the youths to not give up on their call to end Federal Anti-Robbery Squad, F-SARS.

He recently revealed that the protests must continue until their demands are met by the government.

According to him, the youths should not be intimidated and the protests should not stop until all brutalized victims of F-SARS gets justice and the nation’s security is completely overhauled.

He added that our police need adequate funding, training, welfare to be able to discharge their duties effectively.

His words, “Such action by the Rivers State Governor is reckless, dictatorial, shameless and undemocratic. Why a leader who calls himself a democrat would descend so low infringing on the rights of Nigerians on peaceful demonstrations and protests.

“The protest must be sustained until other social and economic ills bedevilling the country like corruption, injustice, insecurity, high cost in governance and unemployment are decisively addressed by the government at all level.

“I commend the Nigerian youths for their courage in the ongoing EndSARS campaign across the nation despite harassment, intimidation and brutality by the police who were out to forcefully stop the movement.”

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.
