Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose has added his voice to the ongoing social media campaign for the scrap of the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
“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,” he said.
The governor in a tweet on Monday night said rather than scrapping the police unit, a reform would be a better alternative.
The #EndSARS campaign has had Nigerians accused the Police Unit of harassment, extra-judicial killings, dispossession of properties, and other forms of intimidation against SARS officials.
The campaign became one of the most discussed topics on social media drew the attention of various prominent Nigerians, celebrities and other concerned citizens among which were a directive by the Inspector-General of Police to call for the reorganisation of the police unit and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
