Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to say that the government will compensate victims of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) killings in the state.

He revealed this recently while he addressed the #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate today.

According to him, the compensation and other agitations of the protesters would be addressed carefully so the protesters can calm down and end the protests.

He added that the voices of the youths have been heard and the conversation should now be on the next step forward.

What do you think?

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.
