It Has Gone Beyond Reforms – Desmond Elliot Backs Calls for EndSARS

It Has Gone Beyond Reforms – Desmond Elliot Backs Calls for EndSARS (Updated: Friday 09th October 2020, 03:36 PM)


Actor and the member representing Surulere Constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Desmond Elliot, has backed the call for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad(SARS).

While addressing #EndSARS protesters at the Lagos Assembly complex in Ikeja the Lagos state capital today October 9, Elliott believes that the brutality by some members of the Special Anti-Robbery (SARS) unit has gone beyond releasing hotlines for their activities to be reported or for a reform to be carried out.

“It has gone beyond having hotlines or doing reforms. As the Deputy Speaker rightly said, we really need to look into it.The IG of police seriously must consider.

Nigeria Police are working for the people. If the (SARS) unit is working for the people and the people are calling for it to be disbanded, then let us do what they are saying.”he said

He frowned at the attitude of some SARS officers who arrest people because of their appearance.“The truth is, you can’t just arrest people on the road because of the hair they wear.

That is not to say that we do not have bad people but because of the lack of training on how to deal civilly with people, we now come to have what SARS is today.

So, I am in alignment with the prayers of the deputy speaker and I feel that we should do that expeditiously.”

Elliott said The outcry against police brutality and extra-judicial killings continued on Friday October 9, with protesters occupying the Lagos State House of Assembly Complex.
