SARS Officers of the Nigeria police force have always been in the news for the wrong reason. This has made the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS Officers) of the Nigeria police the most criticized arm of the police.
Nigerians have never had reasons to praise SARS Officers because the only news about this arm of the police force has been their wanton extortion of Nigerians, Abduction, unwarranted arrest, and even killing of innocent and unsuspecting young Nigerians and this has led to various protests and campaign with the slogan #ENDSARS.
But there seems to be a twist to the vast hate of the Nigerian people toward the SARS Officers, as for once the Nigerian people found a reason to shower praises on the Nigeria police SARS Officers.
Popular social media critic Kemi Olunloyo, who herself has had numerous encounters with the Nigeria police and it’s SARS Officers posted the gallantry of the SARS Officers who squash the activities of a group of arm robbers along the Itu/Calabar highway last night.
The SARS Officers engaged the arm robbers in a gun-battle that saw to the killings of the six robbers who have become torn in the flesh of motorists along that route for some time now. In her tweet, she wrote
“Kudos to @PoliceNG SARS officers who FINALLY killed those SIX car armed robbers snatching, robbing and killing motorists on Itu/Calabar highway last night. They opened fire mercilessly at the officers but the gunbattle ended safely for the cops.
THIS IS WHAT WE NEED SARS OFFICERS FOR🇳🇬”
Nigerians quickly jump on her tweet to shower praise on the SARS officers for their gallantry.
