The lawmaker representing Niger East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the prompt action he took in dissolving the Special Anti Robbery Squard (SARS).
Senator Musa stated this Tuesday in a press statement issued in Minna.
He said the directive from the presidency upon which the IGP acted has restored the nation on the path of peace.
The lawmaker said: “The SARS has been the topic of many discussions, particularly with regards to human rights violations and police brutality.
“The evidence against SARS is not short of damning, from reports from Amnesty International to videos and witness statements that indicate not just a flagrant abuse of power, but a societal menace that affects everyone.”
Senator Musa regretted that despite multiple attempts to reform SARS, there has been overwhelming evidence to suggest that the unit remains a danger to the people it was created to protect.
He called for the reform of the Police force and other security agencies in the country to boost their efficiency in delivering better security cover for people.
He said, “I applaud our youth for leading the movement and exercising their democratic right to peaceful protest. I urge you to continue on the path of action taking as this is how nations are built. I commend you for your resilience. I stand as an ally in this movement as a Nigerian first, but also in my capacity as a lawmaker.”
