5 Things You Should Know About The SARS Situation In Nigeria

Hey Kuulpeeps, by now we guess you might have heard of SARS.

Or you might have seen the #EndSARS hashtag on social media.

Let’s tell you a couple of things you should know about it.

The full meaning of SARS is Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Police unit set up to fight violent crimes such as Armed Robbery, Kidnappings and Cattle Rustling in Nigeria.

It turns out that this Nigerian Police unit is rather kidnapping and abusing citizens.

SARS became a problem in Nigeria after members of the unit were reportedly accused of extra-judicial killings, brutality, torture and other menacing conduct.

The Inspector General of Police in Nigeria ordered an immediate reorganization of SARS but nothing has been done so far.

A campaign, #EndSARS was launched on social media to end the act.

Here are some tweets confirming the operations of SARS in Nigeria

Some even say the Police are checking the phones of citizens
