TRENDING: Gov. Wike, Others Reignite #EndSARS

Following the increasing brutal killings of Nigerian youths by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike of Rivers State alongside other concerned Nigerians have called for a reformation or outright dissolution of the Force.

AllNews reports that the call was made via microblogging site Twitter.

The call comes after the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) reportedly killed a Youth Corps member identified as Miss Stella Ifeoma Abugu.

Abugu was reported to have died in police custody in Abuja a day after she was arrested by SARS operatives in place of her boyfriend, Afam Ugwunwa, whom the SARS officers came to arrest for an undisclosed offense.

Another recent incident is the killing of two young boys who were reportedly chased to death in Osun.

AllNews reports that SARS has a long history of harassing Nigerian youths and incriminating them by planting evidence in a bid to extort them. 

Since SARS became a fully-adapted police unit and social media became a relatively safe space to report incidents, stories of the killings of innocent Nigerians have overshadowed any positive news from the unit. There are many gory tales of their horrific operations targeting innocent Nigerians.

AllNews captured some grievances on Twitter, calling for the reforming or the dissolution of SARS.

According to Governor Wike, "the brutal killing of a young vibrant man in Port Harcourt by men of the SARS unit of the Nigerian Police is unacceptable, we have and will continue to clamor for the reformation or outright dissolution of SARS because they have become a menace to the society."
