The Chief Whip of the Senate and the former governor of Abia State has hailed the Inspector General of Police Muhammed Adamu for disbanding the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) whose activities have sparked nationwide protest.
Kalu also condemned the culture of fear that brought about the members of the police unit.
According to Kalu, “Police must ensure that their actions are in accordance with the fundamental principles for the development of a just society. When people live in fear, they will be skeptical of what’s coming next in their lives and that is totally unacceptable.”
Kalu affirmed the perception of many youths that members of SARS has been unleashing brutalities with impunity.
“A number of SARS officers act with impunity. Many Nigerians have complained about how tensed they feel in check points even when they have their required papers,” he said.
