SARS: Senate Ad-Hoc Committee on Security Reform to Investigate Human Rights Abuses 

The Senate has directed its ad-hoc committee reviewing  Nigeria’s security infrastructure for better performance, to investigate the issue of human rights

abuses by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigerian Police.

The committee which was recently inaugurated by Senator Abubakar Bukola Sarami has been mandated to holistically  look into allegation of human rights abuses raised by the general public and make relevant recommendations and to be included in its final report.

Speaking on the Point of Order raised by Senator Isa Hamman Misau, the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki said “we have already set up an Ad-hoc committee to look at the security infrastructure in the country and I think its appropriate that we send these recommendations to them for further consideration.  

“The Inspector General himself is reviewing the structure and I think it is clear that there is something wrong going on that needs urgent attention. I advice the Committee on security to take action to quickly find a solution to this problem because it is happening all around our constituencies and we must respond to the needs of our people,” he said.
