He recently revealed that his government is definitely prepared to respond to their outcry.
According to him, residents of Osun should know that the state is peaceful and President Muhammadu Buhari had given directives to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to look into the SARS matter immediately.
He added that no citizen should be seen taking laws into his or her hands since the Nigerian Police Force will surely take note of the ongoing agitations.
His words, “We appeal for calm and urge our citizens to continue to uphold the peaceful profile of the state by not taking laws into their hands.
“Let us not be tempted to attack public property and facilities, which took government and taxpayers many years of sacrifice and struggles to build.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has given directives to the Inspector-General of Police to bring to justice officers who might have been found culpable of infringing on the rights of citizens.
“We believe that the Nigerian Police Force has taken note of our agitations, and that the IGP will call his men to order, where necessary.”

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.
