I Regret Creating SARS In 1984 — Former CP Fulani Kwafaja

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. . . 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…

Governor Fayose Issues Warning To Igbo People

The Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose has cautioned the Igbo people not to rely on the words of former president Olusgeun Obasanjo.

In an interview with Sun News, Fayose said the defection of political bigwigs from.....
the Peoples Democratic Party to All Progressives Congress is a show of lack of principles.
Obasanjo had said that the Igbo people can vie for presidency in 2019.
However, Fayose said: "Do you ever take Obasanjo seriously? I don’t take him seriously. By his nature, Obasanjo wants relevance at all times. We have worked with him and used to be his foot soldiers. I know him more than anybody in this country."

"He just talks, so that he would remain relevant. Do you see any other former President in the country running his mouth like his? If it is not the fact that he has a voice as a former head of state, where is Obasanjo’s constituency? Who are his followers?
How many votes can Obasanjo win in his ward? We must say the truth and we must face the truth. Let’s give it to him, as a leader in this country, whoever has governed this country before would remain our leader, but he must equally recall and admit that he is becoming more fairly negative than working towards national building," Fayose added.
He said most of the politicians who have criticized APC in the past have also joined to dine with the party.
"Certainly, I can’t be party to that. But good luck to them, in life, they say time is of the essence and time will catch up with everybody. But you see, if you are patient in life, you would discover that what goes round comes round," Fayose said.
He also said: "It is a matter of time and when the table turns where would they then run to? Will they run back? I remember when a lady senator who had a re-run and was supposed to wait for her re-run in PDP, left her own platform and went to the APC."
"The APC played her into coming and denied her of that ticket. You see, when you are too desperate and you are looking for manna at all cost, looking for snail in the heat of January and February in a Sahara desert. If you are not careful you meet snakes on the way," he said.
