SARS Operatives Made River State Ungovernable - Wike

Published by Nairaland on Sat, 17 Oct 2020

<blockquote><b><br>SARS operatives made Rivers State ungovernable</b><br><br><br>The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has expressed his discontent at the unprofessionalism conduct of the disbanded Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).<br><br><br>The governor in a press statement on Saturday claimed the unit made the state ungovernable for him.<br><br>The statement which he posted on Twitter reads; I call for a total reform of the entire security agencies beginning with the Nigeria Police Force.<br><br>From the beginning, we in Rivers state suffered in the hands of SARS operatives as they killed innocent people and made the state ungovernable.<br><br>They even killed a polytechnic lecturer. We cried but they reduced it to politics. The Media tagged us Rivers of Blood when we had security issues.<br><br><br>If we are sincere in this country, what affects one part of the country will be taken seriously by others. Unfortunately, we politicise everything. Let us practice true federalism.<br><br>You cannot support community policing and say State Police will be controlled by Governors.<br><br><br>The recent appointment of an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) violates the provisions of the Constitution.<br><br><br>Wike also attacked the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo led National Economic Council, NEC, directive that state governors should immediately establish state-based special security and human rights committee to supervise the newly formed police tactical units and all other security agencies.<br><br>According to him, such recommendation indicated the Federal Government is trivialising the demands of the ENDSARS protesters.<br><br>State Governors cannot take charge of Tactical Commands because they cannot employ or discipline anyone who errs.<br><br><br>Now the Federal Government wants us to set up another commission of inquiry when the report of the last one we set up was not implemente, Wike complained.</blockquote><br><a href="https://www.vanguardngr.com/2020/10/sars-operatives-made-rivers-state-ungovernable-%e2%80%95-wike/amp/'__twitter_impression=true">https://www.vanguardngr.com/2020/10/sars-operatives-made-rivers-state-ungovernable-%e2%80%95-wike/amp/'__twitter_impression=true</a>
