Adds: Those involved would be investigated, prosecuted & exposed

*Commends Civil Society activists and those who call attention to the problem

_"I am very concerned, in fact, very angry about what I see, happening to young men and women who are arrested, in some cases maimed or killed by men of the police force."_

Those were the words of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, when State House Correspondents approached him at the Presidential Villa on his way going out of the residence this afternoon.

Prof Osinbajo was asked mainly about the economic challenges facing the country and Nigerians, and also the reported recent upsurge in the activities of FSARS regarding harassment of people alongside different violations of the rights of especially young Nigerians by some police officers.

In his response, the VP who had earlier held a meeting with the Inspector General of Police today at his residence said the President and himself had discussed the matter on a number of occasions noting the President's displeasure about such reports and his resolve to ensure reforms.

According to him, such violations are "completely unacceptable because these are individuals who are meant to protect Nigerians. The arrest, maiming or killing of young people or anyone at all, is completely wrong. It is unlawful and illegal, and anyone involved in this act ought to be investigated and prosecuted."

The VP said, "today, I had a meeting with the Inspector General of Police, we reviewed several of these issues. The President and I have had discussions on this, he is very concerned about it. He wants to see a reform.

"You are probably aware that the IGP has issued a statement looking at all these issues, in particular, the warning against the use of these tactical units such as SARS for purposes of doing anything other than anti-robbery.

"For example, and I think in his statement, he specifically said that you cannot have a situation where SARS says, they are investigating Cybercrime by arresting young men and women carrying their laptops and phones. Cybercrime is an electronic crime. I don’t see how you can investigate that by seizing people’s phones in a taxi or in their cars.

"It is very obvious that this is a major concern, a few bad eggs in the police force are causing all of these problems because it is all over the place, in different states. There is a need to take serious action.

"The IG’s statement today, is a good first step. He has said clearly that police men must wear police uniforms. You cannot say that because you belong to a tactical unit, you can dress in your casual clothing and be armed, because people can’t even tell the difference between robbers and the police, if you are not properly dressed in police uniform. So, clearly, a reform is in the offing.

"So, I will like to encourage civil society activists, young men and women, who bring this regularly, by the way, to the attention of government and the police. And I think that activism is important because they have been able to bring a lot of these issues to the attention of the police and government, and that is an important part of the process of the reform.

Continuing, he said “It is very obvious that this is a major concern. A few bad eggs in the police force are causing all of these problems. It is all over the place, in different states. There is a need to take serious action. The IG’s statement today, is a good first step.

“He has said clearly that officers have to dress properly. You cannot say that because you belong to a tactical unit, you can dress in your casual clothing, armed in a car. People can’t even tell the difference between robbers and the police, if you are not properly dressed in police uniform.”

Urging that all hands be on deck to effect reforms, the VP said “I think that we all have to work together to ensure that the police and law enforcement agents, do what their duty is and their duty is to protect us, protect our society and livelihoods and homes.

“By the way, many of them are doing their duties excellently well, but there are some of them who are engaged in these activities. So, we must see this as something we all must work together to achieve, as individuals, to bring to the attention of the police and government, where there have been violations.

"And on the part of government and the police: to ensure that every one of those allegations is properly investigated and those found responsible are prosecuted and publicized so that people know that prosecution has taken place and this is the consequence. I am very confident that we will have a reformed police force and that process has already begun.”

Racoon the chief wailer, we understand you're trying hard to bring PDP back to power through propagandas and campaign of calumny, but by the end of the year 2022, you'll know what's up cheesy. Stop wailing and join the winning team before it's too late grin.

Mr Osinbajo, If i am going to be honest with you, in my own humble opinion without being sentimental of course, without offending anyone who thinks differently from my own point of view, but also by looking into this matter in distinctive perspective , I would like to say we are ready to defend ourselves against any further police and SARS brutality and we hope the ban is not just on Twitter or paper but should be implemented with IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
Enough is enough!!!
We no go gree oo
We no go gree!!

Thank you.

cool



I love how Osinbajo summoned the IGP yesterday and the IGP gave nation wide. Directive immediately


I wish Buhari could pretend to atleast show such concern

The ban is dead on arrival

The major problem with all this useless ban is that FSARS and SARS are not the ones commiting the killing, it is the normal police carrying out illegal activities dressed in fake SARS Polo and hiring Private Bus to harras people up and down




Regular Police at various Police Stations who are meant to be on Uniform, now abandon their duty post, off their Uniforms, bribe the DPO, hire a cormercial bus and a driver , put on a SARS customised Polo they made themselves, and head to town to harras and obtain money from people

This Ban is just nonsense.....



From 2015, IGP have been banning Fsars and they'll spring up again after few days and the killings will continue.....


The VP should with his limited powers should stop giving us mouth actions and should ensure that there's adequate system to finally put Fsars to an end....


We've been battling with Fsars, gunmen, Herdsmen, Fulanis, Robbers, Boko Haram, etc....We need a stable security system that will set things right ...



Nigeria@60 is nothing to write home about....

Y’all keep banning them and those ones you claimed to put in Jail they still end up in the streets terrorising people, doing the same thing over and over, Such lawlessness and ineptitude within and without, they are not even scared of being filmed because they know the highest punishment they will get is a transfer
also I stumbled on the requirements that should be met before applying for NPF
I was shocked to see MUST BE AN EX CON
