Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar on Saturday cane down heavily in the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police over alleged extra-judicial killings and other acts of brutality against Nigerians.

Atiku in tweets said: “The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the @PoliceNG was set up to confront violent crimes such as armed robbery, kidnapping and other related crimes. However, the unit has today morphed into an oppressor of the Nigerian masses who strive every day for a better life.

“Reports of intimidation, harassment and outright extortion by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have continued unabated.

I strongly condemn their cruel actions against our people, and I urge the government to rise to the occasion and nip this monstrosity in the bud with the seriousness it deserves.
