Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has joined the renewed call for the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, to be reviewed, describing the police unit as oppressors of the Nigerian masses.
Abubakar made the call in a series of tweets (a thread) on Friday, and had garnered over 12,000 re-tweets and more than 24,000 likes as at 4:44a.m. on Saturday.
Recall that in the wake of #ENDSARS campaign in July, SARS state offices were shut in a move to review the police special unit.
The Federal Government had ordered their offices outside Abuja shut, following the integration of both units (including Intelligence Response Squad, IRT) into the Force Intelligence Bureau, FIB “to ensure accountability and due process”.
