A former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Jimi Agbaje, has reacted to calls for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
In a series of tweets, Mr Agbaje noted that the protest that held in Lagos State was not a ploy at clout chasing but rather their grievances were valid.
He noted that the current #EndSARS protests by youth group are an indication that something is fundamentally wrong with the nation’s security architecture.
According to him, bad eggs among the Nigerian Police have been allowed to own the narrative for too long.
The former governorship candidate recalled some names of victims who have been killed by the operatives, such as: “Tiyamiyu Kazeem – Sagamu, Chibuike Daniel Dominic – PH, Remi – Osogbo, Ifeoma Agbugu – Enugu, Kolade Johnson – Lagos and many more whose names or stories we do not know”.
He called for the prosecution of Policemen who are involved in the act.
