stone bridge posted a topic in NewsThe spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force, Jimoh Moshood has said the people calling for the proscription of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) may be armed robbers. Speaking to TheCable on Sunday, Jimoh Moshood, police spokesman, said SARS has lived up to its duty of curbing violent crimes and so, calls for its proscription should be "totally condemned". "As we speak, SARS is doing fantastically well across the country in reducing incidents of robbery to the barest minimum... they are doing very, very well," Moshood said. "There has not been any specific violation of human rights against any SARS personnel. So anybody that is spreading such a rumour is not doing the nation any good. "SARS has no excesses and when there is any, we do investigate. "The call for SARS to be scrapped should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. Anybody calling for their proscription is not doing the nation any good and such people should be suspected as having something to hide." Moshood urged Nigerians with complaints against any police officer - "whether SARS or any other personnel" - to channel their complaints through established channels. "Accessibility (to the police in cases of complaints) is very possible, he said, adding: "We do not take any infraction or violation of human right of any Nigerian likely. You know that so many police officers have been dismissed and even charged to court." "So, Nigerians should not give in to insinuations from people that just come to the social media and start spreading falsehood. Such people spreading such information may likely be armed robbers themselves. "There is laid down rules for police procedures and any police officer that go beyond boundary to do something outrageous which is against the law is apprehended."
