Nigeria Police: OPC blows hot, warns SARS to stop harassing citizens

Nigeria Police: OPC blows hot, warns SARS to stop harassing citizens

Founder of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Dr. Frederick Fasehun has called on the leadership of the Nigeria Police to call operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) to order.

He said the personnel had lost focus and usually acted as if Nigeria was under siege.

Fasehun, who spoke with newsmen in Lagos yesterday condemned clear “breaches and violation of citizens’ fundamental rights on daily basis”.

Fasehun said: “Today, Nigerians appear to be under siege. From the North to the South, from the East to the West, all parts of the country are militarized and turned into a virtual police state.

“The Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) has lost focus. Instead of implementing its primary objective of curtailing armed robbery in the country, it has turned itself into an army of occupation, harassing and pilfering money from innocent citizens.

“What we see now is that police arrest and intimidate people into confessing to crimes they know nothing about without respecting their right to legal counsel and representation. This must stop”.

On the state of the nation vis a vis the Democracy Day celebrations, the OPC leader said there was little to cheer.

He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to “lead all arms of the Executive in the protection and continued sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy, in collaboration with the Legislature, the Judiciary, the Media and Civil Society.”
