A retired Commissioner of Police, Fulani Kwajafa, has expressed regrets for establishing the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force. . . Kwajafa while speaking in an interview with BBC Hausa said the unit had completey derailed from its founding objectives. . . “I entered the Nigeria Police Force in 1984. Then robbery was prevalent. Buhari, the then Head of State, got a lot of complaint. 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. . .

Nigerians: Garba Shehu Is A Liar

He was reacting to a recent article by the UK Telegraph, claiming that the President Buhari-led administration is targeting Christians and the opposition. A number of Nigerians are of the opinion that Buhari’s decisions and appointments are in favour of the northerners and Muslims.

Recently, Western aid officials raised concerns about the Nigerian government’s handling of the boko haram crisis, saying Britain’s Department for International Development contributes an estimated £870 million to Nigeria to support the government’s ability to fight Boko Haram.

They alleged that Buhari is using some of the aid to persecute Christian political rivals instead of tackling Islamist militants.

Many Nigerians seem not to agree with Garba’s statement that Buhari has not been bias as they took to social media to criticise him. Some called him dumb while others described him as a liar.
