#EndSARS: We Won’t Scrap SARS, Police Reacts to Anti-SARS Campaign

Published

on

The Police high command has said contrary to the ongoing social media campaign calling on it to scrap its Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit, it has no such intention whatsoever.

#EndSARS: We Won’t Scrap SARS, Police Reacts to Anti-SARS Campaign 1This was even as it said contrary to claims of wrongdoings against SARS by those it referred to as “criminals”, the anti-robbery unit has done a lot in sanitising the country.

The police said those carrying out the campaign in the social media were armed robbers who have found the operations of the special unit so hot for their activities, and challenged them to come out for identification so that it can investigate them.

It also asked well meaning Nigerians to disregard what it described as so-called special media campaign against SARS, insisting that the campaigners were armed robbers who relocated to the social media it referred to as “comedians centre” to drum up support to achieve their aim.

Force Public Relations Officer,Jimoh Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP, told Vanguard on a telephone conversation that those carrying the campaign for scrapping of SARS were criminals who want to unit scrapped so that their activities can thrive, vowing that the criminals won’t have their way.

He dared those with allegations of wrongdoing against SARS to show up with their evidence or shut up, insisting that the police would not bow to their antics to regain freedom in their nefarious trades.

Hear him:  Anybody calling for scrapping of SARS is an armed robber, let him come forward so that we can investigate him.

Any complaints they give against any police personnel, everybody knows that we don’t hide it.

We have a Public Complaints Bureau which handles complaints. So if anybody is calling for scrapping of SARS, we don’t need to be reminded that they are criminals just using the social media.

The Force Public Relations Officer added: “If there are robbers that are operating and Special Anti-Robbery Squad engage them and somebody would now put something in the social media and say they should scrap SARS, I think it’s unfortunate.

If there are specific allegations against any police officer whether SARS or no SARS, there’s a control mechanism for any of us that violates the rights of Nigerian citizens to be dealt with appropriately.

You have seen instances where police officers have been tried, found guilty and charged to court.

#EndSARS: We Won’t Scrap SARS, Police Reacts to Anti-SARS Campaign 3Those mechanisms are there, so it would be mischievous for anybody to call for scrapping of SARS. You want armed robbers to take over everywhere?

He spoke further:

 So, those who are calling on the scrapping of SARS are people to be suspected, I think they are robbers themselves.

If there are complaints of atrocities against any police officers, they are being dealt with appropriately, we don’t hide them.

You have been reading how police men that misbehave in their lines of duties are being dealt with. So anybody that is calling for scrapping of SARS has something to hide.

The police authorities cannot and will not scrap the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS for these criminals to thrive because it’s not our problem.

The people that have been fighting armed robbery, fighting kidnapping and make a lot of successes?

Look at the number of people they have arrested along Abuja-Kaduna highway, look at the case of Evans. Don’t you know that Intelligence Response Team has elements of Special Anti-Robbery Squad in them.

I’m just trying to let you know the viability, so we shouldn’t be dancing to the tone of the social media, that’s the comedians centre.

If a person would call for the scrapping of SARS, is the person not an armed robber himself?

They are just carrying their campaign in the social media.

Recall that Nigerians at the weekend re-record their campaign on social media calling on the police authorities to immediately scrap its Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit over allegations of some atrocities being carried out by men of the unit.

The campaign tagged:#EndSARS had dominated the social media space at the weekend with Nigerians alleging extra-judicial killings, wanton arrests and dispossession of properties through physical assault and other intimidation tactics against the men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit of the .

Son Heung-min becomes top scoring Asian in Champions League history

Son Heung-min

Tottenham star Son Heung-min has become the top scoring Asian in Champions League history with his quick-fire double against Manchester City.

Spurs went down 1-0 in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg, with Raheem Sterling scoring City’s fastest ever Champions League goal just three minutes and 51 seconds in the game.

But Tottenham’s South Korean star popped up with goals in the seventh and 10th minutes to give his side the lead.

That lead wouldn’t last long though in a wild first half, with Bernardo Silva levelling the match just a minute after Son’s second and Sterling scoring his second and City’s third 10 minutes after that.

Son, however, had already made history after he scored the game’s only goal in the first leg in London last week.

With 12 goals, Son is now the leading goalscoring Asian in Champions League history, passing former Dynamo Kyiv star Maksim Shatskikh (Uzbekistan) for the record.

It has been another prolific season for Son, with the 26-year-old having now reached 20 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season.

Wednesday’s game saw other records set, with the frantic start setting the mark for the fastest four goals ever scored in a single Champions League match.

In addition, Son and Sterling’s early goals meant Wednesday was the first time in Champions League history that two players have scored two goals in the first 21 minutes of the same game.

Nigerian Senate passes police reform bill

Nigerian Senate has passed the Police Reform Bill 2019 during today’s plenary session. The bill titled, Senate Bill 683 bill was passed after the third reading.

Senator Tijjanj Kaura (APC-Zamfara North) had presented the report, and it was seconded by Senator Mao Ohuabunwa (PDP-Abia North). They both asked the Senate to consider the report of the Committee on Police Affairs on the Police Reform Bill, 2019 (SB. 683), following which the Senate moved into the presentation and consideration of report.

The Senate, in considering the bill, dissolved into the Committee of the Whole for its clause-by-clause consideration.

In his response to the passing of the bill, Senate President Bukola Saraki noted that the bill was passed to “ensure that the Police officers are of better condition and are more productive.”

“We want to ensure that our people are protected at all time. I think this is a very great achievement for all of us and I hope we continue to provide better security for our people, protect lives and citizens.

“This will go a long way to show that we are a listening Parliament, listening Senate and there is nothing better we can do in honour of those who have lost their lives along the way due to the fact that our laws at that time were not in line,” Saraki added.

He expressed gratitude to “the Deputy Leader and all those who had contributed for this very important Bill.”

Saraki noted that since 1943, nothing has been done in addressing the Police Act as a reform; expressing thanks to the Senate Police Committee. “I want to thank particularly the Police Committee; the Chairman and members, and our colleagues for their contributions and their work in passing this Bill,” Saraki said.

Ex-President, Alan Garcia Commits Suicide To Avoid Arrest Due To Corruption Scandal

Published

Alan Garcia

Alan Garcia

Alan Garcia,Peru’s former president died in a hospital in Lima on Wednesday, hours after shooting himself in the head to avoid arrest in connection with a bribery probe, authorities said on Wednesday.

Garcia had been one of nine people a judge had ordered to be arrested on Wednesday for alleged involvement in bribes distributed by Odebrecht, a Brazilian construction company that triggered Latin America’s biggest graft scandal when it admitted in 2016 that it had paid kickbacks to politicians across the region to secure lucrative contracts.

Members of his party announced his death to crowds gathered outside of hospital Casimiro Ulloa, where he suffered three cardiac arrests and underwent emergency surgery.

President Martin Vizcarra said on Twitter that he was “consternated” by Garcia’s death, and sent his condolences to his family members.

Garcia governed as a nationalist from 1985 to 1990 before remaking himself as a free-market proponent and winning another five-year term in 2006.

He had denied wrongdoing involving Odebrecht, and blamed his legal troubles on political persecution.

“Others might sell out, not me,” Garcia said in broadcast comments on Tuesday, repeating a phrase he has used frequently as his political foes became ensnared in the Odebrecht investigation.

Interior Minister Carlos Moran said at a news conference before Garcia died that the former president had told police he needed to call his attorney after they arrived at his home in Lima to arrest him.

“He entered his room and closed the door behind him,” Moran said. “Within a few minutes, a shot from a firearm was heard, and police forcibly entered the room and found Mr. Garcia sitting with a wound in his head.”

According to a report by Independent Nigeria, the tragedy occurred barely four days after the 2019 Batch “A” corps members reported for the three weeks orientation course at the Wailo NYSC camp in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

It was gathered that on that fateful morning of April 1, Miss Magdalene had reportedly complained to NYSC officials about her protracted asthma illness and how she would not be fit to attend the ‘morning meditation’ but her complainants fell on deaf ears.

Against her will, she was forced to attend the ‘meditation’ and collapsed a few minutes later. She was immediately attended to by corps member doctors and nurses, but when attempts to resuscitate her were not yielding results, she rushed to ATBUTH to save her life.

Further inquiries from medical doctors at the hospital concerning what could have led to the untimely death of Miss Magdalene had no answers as they were not authorized to speak to anyone about her demise.

It was learned that Miss Magdalene Yohanna, an orphan, sponsored her education throughout her higher institution. She has been buried at her home town in Kaduna amidst tears and pain.
