#EndSARS: People calling for scrapping of SARS “may likely be armed robbers” – Police PRO



#EndSARS: People calling for scrapping of SARS "may likely be armed robbers" - Police Spokesman Jimoh Moshood - BellaNaija

Jimoh Moshood

The spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force Jimoh Moshood has said the people calling for the proscription of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) may be armed robbers, The Cable reports.

Nigerians on Twitter have, since Saturday morning, with the hashtag #EndSARS, been sharing their experiences, a lot of them featuring extortion and some deaths.

Although former vice president Atiku Abubakar has contributed to the hashtag, calling for the government to look into reforming the police, the presidency is yet to make a comment.

Speaking to The Cable, Moshood said SARS is doing “fantastically well” in the country and there hasn’t been any violation of human rights. He said:

As we speak, SARS is doing fantastically well across the country in reducing incidents of robbery to the barest minimum… they are doing very, very well.

There has not been any specific violation of human rights against any SARS personnel. So anybody that is spreading such a rumour is not doing the nation any good.

SARS has no excesses and when there is any, we do investigate.

The call for SARS to be scrapped should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. Anybody calling for their proscription is not doing the nation any good and such people should be suspected as having something to hide.

He added that the police does not permit the violation of human rights by its men, and the ones who do so are apprehended.

He added that people should stop “spreading falsehood,” and the people trending the #EndSARS hashtag may be armed robbers themselves. He said:

Accessibility (to the police in cases of complaints) is very possible, he said, adding: “We do not take any infraction or violation of human right of any Nigerian likely. You know that so many police officers have been dismissed and even charged to court.

So, Nigerians should not give in to insinuations from people that just come to the social media and start spreading falsehood. Such people spreading such information may likely be armed robbers themselves.

There are laid down rules for police procedures and any police officer that go beyond boundary to do something outrageous which is against the law is apprehended.

    And this, my fellow Nigerians is the reason why we, as a country are in a deep dark ditch. Clap for yourself Oga PRO. You and your other semi-illiterate ignorant mofos. God will soon heal this land of you people. The clock is ticking. Time is running out on mediocrity, foolishness, backwardness and ancient ganganisms. Tick tock tick tock. Idiots.

    For crying out loud you even have video evidence. Nigerian parents syndrome. Never admit your faults and God forbid you apologize for doing wrong. It is glaring that all this is true yet you just have to release a rubbish statement. The reason we always call on the President is because it is him alone that can compel these people under him to do their jobs. Its a shame they have just kept quiet. Too bad.

    I remember when my dad got a new SUV.he brought it home and Lil bro removed the plate number in one of the cars and transferred it to the SUV.SARs stopped him,asked for ID,questioned him and let him was when he was about to open the car that their boss told his boys to stop him that it’s a stolen vehicle,kidnap suspect and fake ID.we bailed him +car was later he told us he once met their boss when he was an intern in Warri refinery and gave him 3k when he stopped him and was like he wants to money(was actually the first time they met) talking about paying fees and buying stationaries for his kids and he possibly picked up the plate number which was what he used to collect that huge amount from us.?.My bro didn’t return home from the station cause my dad told him not to.they are good now though.

    Abi this one is mad ni?? We should report any case to the police station as if noooo we haven’t. Those that reported ended up in cells and still paid over 20k for bail. Baba, come to Ife and see what your people are doing. Because I use an iPhone and I’m fair in complexion they conclude I’m a yahoo boy. That’s how they arrested me at 10pm on my way to my hostel and took me to atm and withdrew 15k themselves before freeing me in the middle of the night. Had to walk back home. Baba, all of you are mad, very mad.
