Civil society organisations and trade unions in Borno State are currently on a street rally to express their displeasure over the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian police by the federal government.
The protesters said they want SARS to continue operating in Borno State.
The chairman of a coalition of CSOs in Borno, Ahmed Shehu, said though they are not happy with happenings in other parts of the country, “the SARS operatives have contributed immensely to the fight against terrorism.”
