FSARS: Buhari Has Subjected Nigerians To Police Brutality Since 2015– HURIWA


By Lucky Uwakina (AHGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, on Sunday, alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari has subjected Nigerians to police brutality through the instrumentality of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF.

This view was expressed by HURIWA, one of the most vocal rights groups in the country, which said that the Buhari government since its inception has been forcefully clamping down on dissent, using SARS personnel.

HURIWA’s claims came on the heels of the alleged killing of a young man in Ughelli, Delta State, via a statement by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, excerpts of which read: “HURIWA has located the blame for the rampant shootings and extralegal killings of citizens by armed Police operatives known as Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) on the desk of President Muhammadu Buhari for having a long history of impunity and crass misuse of the armed security forces to quell otherwise peaceful protests since 2015, thereby leading to the killing of dozens of Nigerians.”
