The man who established up the hated Nigerian police unit, Sars, accused of human rights abuses has explained to the BBC that he feels “unfortunate” and “guilty” about what the company has turn out to be.
“Sars of these days is not the very same Sars I set up in 1984,” Fulani Kwajafa reported.
He claimed that the company experienced departed from the values of serving honourably.
Officers from the Unique Anti Robbery Squad have been accused of committing extrajudicial killings and torture.
President Mohammadu Buhari declared the disbandment of the company this 7 days immediately after countless numbers of Nigerians took to the streets to protest against law enforcement brutality.
A new agency identified as Swat has been shaped to consider in excess of obligations performed by Sars but this has also been turned down by the protesters.
Mr Kwajafa claimed that the changes could possibly be undermined if there’s no “adjust in mentality”.
He added that the code of conduct that he set up when developing Sars experienced ensured that there was “no incident with users of the community” when he was in demand.
