Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday expressed disappointment at the actions of some policemen, especially those attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Several Nigerians including former Vice- President Atiku Abubakar and the ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki had condemned the SARS operatives, many of whom had been accused of harassing and killing Nigerians.
Atiku had on Saturday charged the Federal Government to reform the SARS and rid the police unit of “rogue elements.”
And in his reaction to public outcry on the activities of the SARS operatives, Osinbajo told State House correspondents that reprehensible actions from those saddled with the responsibilities of protecting citizens are unacceptable.
He, therefore, commended the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, for moving to address the various complaints about the police unit.
The vice-president said it was wrong for policemen to seize laptops and phones from young Nigerians in the name of fighting cybercrime.
He urged Nigerians to continue to bring the issue regularly to the attention of the government and the police.
He stressed that the reform of the police, particularly the SARS is in the offing.
