The Igbo National Council, INC, yesterday said it is disturbed that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had allowed his men of the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARs, to dress in attires that make them look like criminals.
The President of INC, Chilos Godsent spoke in Owerri, while reacting on the campaign by Nigerians that SARs should be scrapped over reports of killings of innocent Nigerians.
INC said they were jittery that SARs go about harassing Nigerians and denying them their constitutional freedom by the use of guns.
INC was of the opinion that Nigerians should be listened to by ending the existence of SARs.
According to them in a reaction, “The INC hails the boldness of the IGP to harken to the yearnings of Nigerians in their demand to disband SARS and its sister special squad.
“Members of SARS have constituted themselves into gangs that forcefully extort Nigerians. “We wonder why the police authority will allow its team to wear ear rings, keep beards and dress like criminals.
They use guns purchased with tax payers money to harass Nigerians and forcefully extort money from their victims.”
