  1. They should just end it once and for all. Re organising is just a way of getting us off their back while they continue with their atrocities. If you see how they kill people daily at Awkuzu SARS eeh..... Those people are heartless

    1. Awkuzu Sars is something else. Wasting innocent lives daily. Please we are tired of all these criminals posing as Sars officers. Scrap them already. #Endsars

  2. Re organizing or to end this deadly unit completely? My fear is even if they scrap them they might have no choice than to employ them into the already sick police force and that becomes double jeopardy for the citizens.

  3. Sars are d real criminals.come to phc and see how dis IG boys perform.they hate to see young vibrant guys.stella'there is dis squad that use black highlander,pray never to meet dis squad,then d ones that use corolla,"dis squad is another dangerous squad'if they hold u.(abeg abeg 50k)then d other squad that use sienna'they are d real killer squad,MVP,if you see kidnappers, assassins,u ve seen them.dis ones carry different tools in their car loaded with like 6magazines,matchets..pray never to meet them in a lonely zone or even at night or even day time..then we have d regular hilux men,anything goes,from 20k with abeg abeg,depending on d vehicle their client is using....sars are criminals and criminals are sars. They love illegal jobs...dis month is their month of major collection.. I pray they never see us.Amen.

    1. Can you imagine. Police telling someone to sort them or they set you up, people who are meant to protect.

  4. No way they should end SARS already

  5. Sars police raid my players when they are waiting for my driver to turn his vehicle so that they go home, they held 6 musicians, went & take corpse of a boy stabbed to death by unknown pple, & tag my bassist, drummer,congalist, kybordist, leadguiterist, murderers, they collected 1/2 a million that's 500000k to bail innocent men after spending 5days in their custody. # we don't want restructuring End Sarnowwww#

  6. All of them are the same jare. Sars and police. was it not police that threatened to finger me because my boyfriend dropped me off in front of my street and kissed me goodnight, they waited for him to go and came that I was a slut and they must put their finger or gun inside me to check if i was a virgin.
    Forcing me to enter their car and go with them. as they were wanting to collect my phone I dialled my uncle who is a commission of police in one state and he was hearing what was going on. He then called back and they picked thinking it was my boyfriend. That was how I was saved from God knows what that night.

  7. Let's face the as much as I don't like what they do sometimes..this guys rae trying truth be told..those people saying #endsars Yahoo boiz..Am a G boy I know wha we do...#dontendsars

  8. Old wine, new bottle.
    Always building on rotten foundation.
