From Maiharaji Altine Gusau
Collation of Network on Non-governmental Organisations and Civil Societies on good governance under the leadership of Comrade Bachiri Sarkin Fulani have appealed to the Inspector General of Police not to scrap the Special Anti Robert Sqaud for the interest of the nation.
The Civil Societies who came to the Police Command Headquarters Gusau in their hundreds held a peaceful protest to demonstrate against the clamouring for the disbandment of “SARS” in Nigeria.
Bachiri, who spoke on behalf of the various groups pointed out the successes achieved by the “SARS” Units in fighting against Armed banditry, Cattle Rustling, Kidnapping and other heinous crimes in Zamfara State.
He averred that, what the “SARS” and by extension the Police required is the adequate funding through improved budgetary provisions, releases and reforms.
The Commissioner of Police in his response thanked the NGOs for the peaceful manner they held their protest.
He assured them that he will deliver their position paper for the support of “SARS” and the Nigeria Police to the Inspector General of Police.
He urged other protesters elsewhere to emulate the Civil Societies in Zamfara and be guided by the Nigeria Constitution and other extant laws.
