prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of Nigeria has commended Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police for banning the routine patrol of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and other Tactical Squads of the Nigeria Police Force.
Osinbajo who also commended Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) for speaking up against injustices meted out by some security operatives on young Nigerians, stated that he’s been concerned and sometimes angry that SARS operatives arrest and kill young men.
Wondering why the security operatives will run such operations without their uniforms, Osinbajo urged the police to stick to their mandate.
He wrote on Instagram;
Police Violation of Young People’s Right Unacceptable
• The harassment of young Nigerians by some police officers is completely unacceptable, unlawful and illegal. The government and the police must, and will, ensure that every one of those allegations is properly investigated and those found responsible, prosecuted.
