If We #EndSARS, Armed Robbers Will Take Over — Police
The Nigeria Police Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, has called on #EndSARS agitators to have a rethink and join the Police in supporting SARS for the safety of all Nigerians.
In an interview with Punch, Moshood said “We can’t say because there are one or two infractions, we should end SARS because if you end SARS, robbers would take over. We appreciate the patriotism of those demanding an end to SARS, but other groups are equally saying, reform SARS. So if they have any complaint against the unit, let them tell us and it would be addressed.”
He added that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad is a specialised unit of the Force that deals with armed robbery, kidnapping, cattle rustling, car snatching and the like; any crime involving use of firearms.
Moshood noted that “To be in SARS, first, you must be a policeman, a general duty officer, and you must have been in the job for not less than five years. You must also have prerequisite experience before you can be posted to the squad. The officer would also undergo operational training as well as training on handling of suspects.”
