Buhari Has Demonstrated Good Leadership – Senate President, Lawan Reacts To Dissolution Of SARS



Ahmad Lawan

Ahmad Lawan, Senate President, has reacted to the recent ban on the operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a subunit of the Nigeria Police Force.

In a statement through Ola Awoniyi, his Special Adviser (Media), in Abuja, on Sunday, Lawan commended President Muhammadu Buhari for disbanding SARS, noting that he has demonstrated good leadership by yielding to the popular will of the people.

The Senate President also commended Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), but noted that the security authorities must go beyond dissolution of the SARS operatives and come up with measures for the reformation of the Force into an effective law enforcement and crime fighting agency that would be a true and respected friend of the Nigerian people

“I am applauding the president because it is a demonstration of good leadership to yield to the demand of the populace in difficult situations like this,” he said.

“The expectation is that this situation offers us another opportunity to reform the operations of the entire Force.

“I also reiterate my call for the prosecution of all security personnel whose extra judicial killings and other acts of misconduct brought us to this sorry state.

“I hope that the steps taken by the Inspector-General of Police will be followed with more comprehensive reform of the police.”
