SARS: The Terror Arm Of The Nigeria Police

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), has created a lot of panic among the civilian population within the Nigerian state especially in the southern part of Nigeria. SARS has been a cause of terror to the indigenous Christian populations living in Southern Nigeria and has perpetrated the kidnapping of Nigerian youths, extortion, brutality and mass murders of innocent civilians. What more could be more dangerous than this? The now-defunct unit of the Nigeria police has graduated consistently and consciously to an armed terror group. In the squad, they are the Judge, the Jury and the Executioners. To the SARS operatives, it is a crime for a young man to live a good life, to use good gadgets (phones) and dressed in a good outfit. Lives are cut short on daily basis without provocation from the indigenous civilian population entrapped in Nigeria. 

Sometime ago, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike announced to the full glare of the citizens that the SARS operatives is a terrorist group within the Nigerian police due to their antecedents. He vehemently accused the SARS commander of Rivers State as aiding criminality within the state ranging from kidnapping, civil unrest, indiscriminate arrest, torture, etcetera. However, one would wonder why those who were sent to protect lives and properties now will become a threat to the existence of peaceful living within the peaceful neighborhood of innocent citizens.

This police unit is not fighting criminals or defending the citizens against armed robbery, instead the operatives have turned to institutionalized criminals operating under the guise of defending the citizens, unleashing fear and turmoil. The SARS operatives sadly have become the willing tools of the supposed rich and wealthy in the society being readily used to demonize the less privileged with fear and calumny. The political sphere has consistently used this same police division to rob the citizens of their rights to freedom of expressions as seen in the Nigerian Political institutionalized criminal electoral process. The Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), operates as an official terror arm for the murderous Nigerian government and her treacherous political leadership.

To the political sphere of the Nigerian state, SARS would not be scrapped and one would wonder why the atrocities of this police division is not yet terroristic enough to warrant the sacking of all divisional heads. The politicians are yet silent to this acts of violence by the Nigerian police. Some how, the Nigerian state has over the years especially within this Buhari administration, promoted and defended the uprising of imposed terror, against their victims. Terrorists have been given presidential accolades and monetary appreciations as in the case of the Miyetti Allah. Today they have kept a blind eye to the pains of the people who are plagued with terror emanating from the disbanded unit of this Nigerian police.

If more terror is inflicted on the civilian population of the Nigerian state, then the politicians and the Nigeria police chiefs must be held accountable. If there is an increased civil unrest and indiscriminate murders, the Nigerian political leadership should be held to account. For every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.
