Nigeria’s Senate President, Lawan kicks against scrapping of SARS
Ahmad Lawan, Nigeria’s Senate President has kicked against scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This position was made known on Wednesday, October 7 by Senate President when lawmakers were deliberating a motion on the recent extrajudicial killings carried out by a security personnel attached to the controversial Nigerian police unit.
Lawan said some good personnel in the police unit might be denied the opportunity to perform better if it is scrapped.
“I think that this is the situation that should be properly investigated. Those involved in recent incident should be arrested and prosecuted. The law should take its due course. This is not acceptable. Nigerians need to know what happened to those who have killed Nigerians.
“There are good people and bad people in SARS. Scrapping of agencies when you have mistakes may not be the best position. Rule of law should be put in place.
“If you scrap SARS, you lose the chance of getting those doing well to continue to do well.’
