The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has appealed to all Nigerians over the pains brought to them by some officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a controversial unit of the Nigeria Police Force.
The VP again condemned the unlawful and unprofessional activities of the SARS operatives, a development which brought about the ongoing nationwide protest.
Osinbajo in a series of tweets on his verified Twitter account on Friday, October 16, noted that he could feel the pains of many young persons who are directly or indirectly affected by the condemnable act of the disbanded unit of the police force. According to the VP, he understands that there were many people who have been assaulted by the police and that the act is unacceptable in all forms.
He, however, assured citizens that the government is concerned with their feelings and that they will take responsibility for protecting young people, even from those who are paid to protect them.
