Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, has vowed to take immediate action, as incidents of harassment of residents by officers of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) continue to rise.
Recall that there has been complains in the past days over the harassment of youths, especially by officers of the SARS unit of the Nigeria Police Force, which has led to another #EndSARS movement, on social media, with users now alerting each other on sightings of these officers.
The Lagos state governor has now broken his silence on the matter and promised speedy intervention.
“The safety of our residents is my number one duty as the CSO of Lagos.
“So, reading reports of seemingly unlawful exploitation by the people charged to protect is very worrying and needs to be addressed immediately.
“Be assured that appropriate actions will be taken and speedily too,” the Governor tweeted from his verified handle on Sunday.
