An ethnic dimension has been introduced into the current debate the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force.
Goodluck Jonathan’s former aide, Reno Omokri has taken to the social media to blast the unit for treating youths in the southern part of the country like “trash”.
Omokri wondered why the unit rarely operate in the Northern part of the country where there are a lot of crime incidence and terrorism.
“FSARS operatives treat Southerners like trash and do not even bother to operate in the North, continues, FSARS may end up sparking a revolution whose end result may lead to the division of Nigeria.
“We can’t have more insecurity in the North and more FSARS activity in the South. It does not make sense. This #Buharist idea, where Prosperity is automatically suspicious must end. We condemn fraud and robbery, but a youth does not have to be a fraudster or robber to prosper in Nigeria. #EndSARS,” Omokri wrote.
The country has now witnessed days of continued protest calling for the scrapping of the controversial unit.
