Governor Bello Matawalle

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has disclosed that the state is in dire need of the recently dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

In the past few weeks, Nigerians across the country protested against the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force.

According to the protesters, the police unit engages in illegal detention and killings of innocent Nigerians.

This led to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, to disband the unit.

The development doesn’t seem to have gone down well with Zamfara state Governor Bello Matawalle, who according to him, the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) was vital to securing lives and properties in Zamfara state he governs.

He made this know as he addressed newsmen after returning from a meeting of Northern Governors in Kaduna.

Bello Matawalle, used the opportunity to call for the deployment of officials of the disbanded police unit to Zamfara.

He Said;

“We have recorded tremendous development in the area of peace building the Zamfara state with the commitment and professional contribution and support of the FSARS of the Nigeria Police.

“I will personally seek audience with Mr President on this issue. We need the FSARS or its equivalent in Zamfara state because we have seen their positive impact in spite their alleged excesses.”
