Sanwo-Olu Backs SARS Disbandment

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has confessed that the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a victory for the Nigerian youths following nationwide protests against the squad.

He disclosed this on Sunday in Ikeja upon his return from Ondo where he led as the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Campaign Council for the governorship election.

While commending the youths for the peaceful manner they conducted themselves during the protests, Governor Sanwo-Olu believes their actions have shown what democracy truly stands for.

“This is actually a victory for our youths. This is a victory because your voice has been heard. So if you say this is not the first time, this is the first time they are disbanding it,” he said.

The governor also called on the youths to sheathe their swords following the positive response to their demands.

He wants the young population to collaborate with the police authorities by forming themselves into groups aimed at providing a citizen-oriented policing structure.
