Responses thrill this question raised on social media today morning by Apostle Johnson Suleman, founder and senior pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries, regarding the request of Nigerians to abolish the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), an arm of the police of Nigeria.
On his post on his verified Twitter page, Apostle Johnson Suleman asked, “If SARS is disbanded, would the same violent and callous officers not be released into other police forces?” The pastor also said that SARS should be disbanded and restructuring should be pursued by the entire Nigerian police force.
If SARS is dissolved,wont same brutal and callous officers be absolved into other police departments of the same force?…#ENDSARS and reform the entire police force..

In response to the post, his followers agreed with his opinion that SARS in Nigeria should indeed be suspended by the government.
See some of the responses below as recorded by the Writer at the time this article was filled in:
Recall that Nigerians are crying over the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) illegal practices over overtime. Last week, social media users posted videos of SARS activities, and the videos showed how some youthful Nigerians were allegedly killed by SARS.
Even though the police headquarters said that the investigation is continuing.
