Just few hours after IG of police banned the operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), the Special Tactical Squad (STS) and Intelligence Response Team (IRT) from undertaking routine patrols as well as stop and search duties, they blatantly disobeyed the order and went ahead and forcefully took a lady away from her home to an unknown destination
Despite repeated promises by the governments to reform the Nigerian Police Force and the immediate overhauling of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, gross human right violations, inefficiency, stealing and total disregard for human rights remain widespread within the force
In the video posted by the lady’s sister she was heard crying and pleading for help saying that SARS officers followed her to their house and took her away.
Watch the video below:
The complete failure of Nigerian authorities to bring an end to the gross human rights violations perpetuated by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad or to bring any SARS officer to justice is shocking and unacceptable.
Nigerians are outraged by the systemic human rights violations perpetrated by the SARS with impunity and they seriously need to be called to order.
