#EndSARS Campaign : They’re doing Fantastically Well - Police Spokesman

The Nigeria Police Force have rubbished the call by millions of Nigerian youths online for SARS to be disbanded following numerous allegations of torture and crimes leveled against the the special anti crime unit.

SARS was established by the Nigeria police to combat violent crimes in the country but the rise in the harassment of unarmed youths and sometimes murder of alleged criminals has ignited the uproar as a result the call for their disbandment.

Angry Nigerians took to the social media to condemn the continued abuse of human right by the security unit  using the hastag #EndSars. Nigerian rapper, Vector also joined the campaign as he shared his bitter ordeal in the hands of the dreaded armed men.

Reacting to the online campaign, the Nigerian Police which was named the worst in the world by a recent study said that accusations leveled against SARS should be dismissed by Nigerians.

The statement was made by the Nigerian Police spokesman Jimoh Moshood while speaking to TheCable on Sunday, in his words;

“As we speak, SARS is doing fantastically well across the country in reducing incidents of robbery to the barest minimum… they are doing very, very well,”

“There has not been any specific violation of human rights against any SARS personnel. So anybody that is spreading such a rumour is not doing the nation any good.

“SARS has no excesses and when there is any, we do investigate.

“The call for SARS to be scrapped should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. Anybody calling for their proscription is not doing the nation any good and such people should be suspected as having something to hide.”

Moshood then urged anyone with complaints against any police officer – “whether SARS or any other personnel” – to forward their complaints through established channels.

“Accessibility (to the police in cases of complaints) is very possible, he said, adding: “We do not take any infraction or violation of human right of any Nigerian likely. You know that so many police officers have been dismissed and even charged to court.”

“So, Nigerians should not give in to insinuations from people that just come to the social media and start spreading falsehood. Such people spreading such information may likely be armed robbers themselves.

“There is laid down rules for police procedures and any police officer that go beyond boundary to do something outrageous which is against the law is apprehended.”

How Corrupt PDP Defectors Financed Buhari’s Campaign

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP members at the National Assembly has fired back at President Muhammadu Buhari over his statement saying that looters would not return to power in 2019.

President Buhari, in a shroud reference to the PDP, on Thursday at an interactive session with community leaders and stakeholders in Kano said;

“Those who ruled Nigeria without vision and looted the nation ’ s treasury are the same people boasting that they will displace the APC government and return to office .

“ We will wait and see , if they think Nigerians are ignorant . They have the guts to declare their intention to reclaim office . ”

However, the PDP caucus in the House of Representatives , on Saturday , said that Buhari was a major beneficiary of funds allegedly looted by PDP leaders .

Mrs. Binta Bello, the Deputy Minority Whip of the House made the statement saying that Buhari should rather apologise to Nigerians for being unable to fulfill his campaign promises instead of attacking the PDP the opposition party. In her words;

“He (Buhari ) has the right to attack us and we have the right to criticise him too by telling him the truth. That is the beauty of democracy .

“ The people he now calls looters were the same people who funded his campaign in 2015 .

“ His campaign in 2015 was different from his campaign in previous years. In 2015 , he had all the money to spend . The looters , who left the PDP , gave him the money . Why didn ’ t he reject it or tell Nigerians how he raised the campaign money ?

“ Let’ s face the facts , the President has failed in delivering his campaign promises. Where is the 2017 budget ? What can he boast to have achieved in terms of implementing the budget ?
“ They can see that he is in power and yet there is nothing to celebrate in terms of achievement . PDP has achievements it can point to . ”

Senator Samuel Anyanwu, the senator representing Imo East) also described Buhari’s comment as far from the truth. According to him;

“How can he say our party is a party of looters ? What is happening in APC now ? Are they not looting ? I don’ t agree with him . ”

Similarly, Senator Mathew Urhoghide totally disagreed with President Buhari saying;

“I don’ t agree with the President because 80 per cent of the looters in the then PDP government are now with the President in APC and are still looting and others are waiting to loot, ”.
