Ekiti Governor, Ayodele Fayose has called for the reformation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.
He said in a Tweet that rather than scrapping the police unit, a reform would be a better alternative.
He wrote: “I won’t say #EndSARS. Rather I will say #ReformThePolice such that someone will not sit in Abuja and be in charge of resolving robbery issue in Abakaliki.”
The campaign, which started Saturday with the hashtag #EndSARS, has seen many Nigerians raise allegations of extra-judicial killings, dispossession of property, and other forms of intimidation against operatives SARS officials.
The campaign, which became one of the most discussed topics on the social media, in recent weeks, drew the attention of various prominent Nigerians, celebrities and other concerned citizens.
The action propelled a directive by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to call for the re-organisation of the police unit.
