House of Reps member, Akin Alabi files motion to dissolve SARS

Akin Alabi, a member of the house of representatives from Oyo state raised a motion to dissolve the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) of the Nigeria police force “over ceaseless killings and attacks on innocent citizens”.

The NairaBet CEO added that SARS operatives have become so lawless that even the police inspector-general can no longer contain their excesses.

He said;

“Policing in Nigeria continues to fall short of modern practices where citizens should be treated with utmost respect and decorum, therefore making it very difficult for an average citizen to truly trust that the police are their friends.”

It is expected that the motion will be considered today, Tuesday October 6
