END SARS- This has been one of the most trending hash tags (#) all over the social media world in Nigeria. Many persons especially the youths who feel they have been victimized by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigerian Police Force have cried out for the scrapping of the unit. While deliberation is still on-going a shocking discovery has been made known in Rivers state.
It was allegedly reported that two men who have been parading themselves as security operatives under the office of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS), were arrested recently by the Rivers Police command at Igwuruta.
More details of these suspected criminals can be found below-
One of the culprits claimed to be a commander and the other was an officer.
The scam Commander Kenneth Obunwa and his partner in crime, officer Oluwagbenga Abe are to appear in court soon.
Kenneth Obunwa is an indigene of Rivers State, and Oluwagbenga Abe is from Ijero-Ekiti in Ekiti State.
They were paraded by the state Commander of SARS, Akin Fakorode. During the course of the parade of the suspects, the State Commander said the arrest was made possible after they received a distress call at about 7.00AM on the 5th of December, 2017.
He had this to say about all the incidents:
F-SARS received a distress call that Obunwa and Abe, who claimed to be operatives of F-SARS, accosted Pastor Finan and his younger brother and subjected them to thorough search in their compound at Igwuruta, with undisclosed sum of money extorted from them.
The suspects impersonated as operatives of F-SARS and they have been doing it for a while. We quickly responded to the distress call, because the members of the public adequately utilized the distress lines that we gave.
We traced the impersonators and we arrested them. We have a lot of miscreants who are impersonating security agents, especially F-SARS, thereby harassing, intimidating and extorting money from innocent members of the public, who ought to be very vigilant.
With this new discovery is it safe to say that the persons harassing the Nigerian Youths are fake operatives? Or is this just a misleading action by the agency?
