Extra-Judicial Killings: Banning F-SARS not the solution – Lawan


The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan says banning the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) is not the solution to cases of extrajudicial killings by the Police unit.

His statement comes after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, last week, banned F-SARS personnel and other Tactical Squads of the Force from embarking on routine patrols.

Senator Lawan stated this on Wednesday during plenary in response to a motion by Senator Oluremi Tinubu on extrajudicial killings and human rights violations by SARS operatives.

According to the Senate President, one of the solutions is to arrest and prosecute police officers who have engaged in extrajudicial killings.
