Nigeria Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has revealed reason why house of representatives cannot vote to end SARS.
The members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has been in hot water in the past few months, with many Nigerians calling for the abolition of the operative, but Nigeria Senate President has now stated reason why they cannot be scraped.
He made this known in Abuja, on Wednesday, October 7, as lawmakers deliberated a motion on the recent extrajudicial killings carried out by the security personnel.
He was quoted as saying:
“I think that this is the situation that should be properly investigated. Those involved in recent incident should be arrested and prosecuted. The law should take its due course. This is not acceptable.
“Nigerians need to know what happened to those who have killed Nigerians. There are good people and bad people in SARS. Scrapping of agencies when you have mistakes may not be the best position. Rule of law should be put in place. If you scrap SARS, you lose the chance of getting those doing well to continue to do well.”
