Following a pro-SARS rally in Port Harcourt yesterday, hundreds of youths in Anambra State has joined in the protest, staging a peaceful protest against the call to scrap the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, in the country.
According to Vanguard, the youths protested under the aegis of Concerned Anambra Citizens and Non-Indigenes and were drawn from various local government area of the state.
They were seen converging at the gate of the SARS office in Awkuzu in Oyi local government area displaying placards of various inscriptions like “Removal of SARS, an invitation to kidnapping, robbery”; “We want crime-free Christmas and new year”; and “Let SARS be”; among others.
The Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on political matters, Mr Emeka Okafor, who is also the convener, said their protest was to let the people know of the risk associated with the scrapping of SARS.
He attributed the relative peace existing in the state to the active and aggressive operations of that arm of the police force, insisting that any attempt to scrap the unit would amount to return of all forms of crimes and criminality in the state.
Also speaking, the chairman of Police Community Relations Committee in the state, Chief Francis Ezenwankwo, said those calling for the scraping of SARS had selfish and ulterior motives and called on them to have a rethink.
Though he acknowledged that some officials of the unit might have their shortcomings, Ezenwankwo argued that rather than scrap SARS as a body, the unit should be reformed and repositioned for better service delivery.
He said: “We have a system where erring officers are disciplined, including redeployment, training and retraining to bring out the best from them.”.
Responding, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chris Owolabi commended the group for peaceful conduct, promising that the message would be delivered appropriately.
