I am angry with SARS: VP Osinbajo
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday said he is very angry about the deadly violence and corruption linked to police special anti-robbery squad.
Mr. Osinbajo’s comments come on the heels of nationwide outrage in which citizens are again demanding immediate dissolution of the dreaded police squad.
The unit has been blamed for killing, maiming, robbing and blackmailing Nigerian youth across different parts of the country.
Mr. Osinbajo, per a tweet from his spokesman Laolu Akande, said he and President Muhammadu Buhari have been concerned about the danger SARS now constitutes to the Nigerian society.
“I am very angry about what I see happening to young men and women who are arrested, in some cases maimed or killed by men of the police force,” Mr. Osinbajo said.
His statement came hours after the police announced additional restrictions on the activities of SARS operatives on Nigerian roads.
