A former Commissioner of Police, Fulani Kwajafa has disclosed that he really regrets establishing the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

This comes after the widespread brutalities meted out to Nigerians by SARS officials that has resulted in the #EndSARS protests.

Speaking in a recent interview with the BBC Hausa, he said;

“I entered the Nigeria Police Force in 1984. Then robbery was prevalent. Buhari, the then Head of State, got a lot of complaints. He told me and Mr Inyang, the then IGP, that we must do something about it or be fired.

Mr Inyang called me and told me to come up with a plan to save the country from thieves, so I said okay.

After four months of creating SARS, there was peace, those who were not caught ran, and those who were caught were sent to prison.

This thing frustrates me, there is no reason why because someone commits a crime that the person should be killed. There are laws and no one will give an order that if you see armed robbers kill the person.

I’ve been hearing disheartening news, to the extent that I have thought to myself that it seems among the SARS officials, there are armed robbers.

This is not why we created SARS, the reason is completely different, this is not the purpose. In fact, when I am mentioned as the creator of SARS, I feel ashamed. It’s a thing of regret for me.

If I had known it would be like this, I wouldn’t have created it because people who know when I established the unit always say to be, is it not Kwajafa’s baby? But this is not what I birthed, it has been changed.”
