Hon Akin Alabi Files Motion To Proscribe SARS In Nigeria


Akin Alabi, a Nigerian Lawmaker Representing Egbeda/Ona-Ara Federal Constituency has filed a motion before the House of Representatives praying for a dissolution of the Special Anti Robbery Squad ( SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police.

He stated that the unit has committed enough atrocities and there is more than enough evidence to outlaw SARS in Nigeria.

Hon. Alabi descried the lawlessness of the SARS officers stating that Nigerians have lost faith in the corrupt unit.

“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,” Mr. Alabi said.

Lawmakers were notified of the motion today and would likely be considered at a plenary this week.
