#EndSARS: ‘I Regret Creating SARS’ : Former Commissioner Of Police

Published

on

A former Commissioner of Police, Fulani Kwajafa has disclosed that he really regrets establishing the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

This comes after the widespread brutalities meted out to Nigerians by SARS officials that have resulted in the #EndSARS protests.

Speaking in a recent interview with the BBC Hausa, he said;

“I entered the Nigeria Police Force in 1984. Then robbery was prevalent. Buhari, the then Head of State, got a lot of complaints. 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 I have thought to myself that it seems among the SARS officials, there are armed robbers.

This is not why we created SARS, the reason is completely different, this is not the purpose. In fact, when I am mentioned as the creator of SARS, I feel ashamed. It’s a thing of regret for me.

If I had known it would be like this, I wouldn’t have created it because people who know when I established the unit always say to be, is it not Kwajafa’s baby? But this is not what I birthed, it has been changed.”

Akufo-Addo Wanted Me To Investigate Mahama After He Became NDC Flagbearer : Martin Amidu

Published

on

Martin Amidu, former Special Prosecutor has revealed that President Nana Akufo-Addo wanted him to probe former President John Mahama after winning the NDC primaries to become the party’s flagbearer.

has revealed that President Nana Akufo-Addo wanted him to probe former President John Mahama after winning the NDC primaries to become the party’s flagbearer.

Mr. Amidu’s comment is in response to the Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo’s November 17 letter in which he claimed that the former Special Prosecutor had “erroneously and without moral or legal basis” decide to confer immunity on National democratic Congress Presidential Candidate, John Mahama in the Airbus Scandal.

But Amidu, in his response, stated that “I took the decision to hold in abeyance the investigation of former President John Dramani Mahama with the knowledge and consent of the President as the Chairman of the National Security Council on purely national security grounds and not politics.”

“The President also knows that he instructed a Minister of State while he the President was on a campaign tour in the Northern Region to liaise with me to explore whether or not it was prudent to investigate former President Mahama after he won his party’s primaries to be its flagbearer.

“The President was briefed as Chairman of the National Security Council as to why the investigation had to be held in abeyance till after the election and he consented to it. I can prove this with mathematical precision if the President so wishes,” he said.

Martin Amidu has fired fresh shots at the Presidency after Akufo-Addo received his resignation letter in other news.

In response to allegations leveled against him from the presidency, Mr. Amidu accused President Akufo-Addo of being the head honcho of corruption.

He added that all the presidency’s response concerning his resignation and line of work were full of ‘public deceptions and propaganda’ that needed to be demystified.

Amidu described the Nana Addo as a president who took the presidential “oath while looking like the innocent flower of anti-corruption but being the mother serpent of corruption under it.”

He further emphasized that the Agyapa Royalties Transaction deals as the biggest corrupt deal in Ghana since independence.

“I resigned my position as the Special Prosecutor because of the traumatic experience I suffered from the reaction of the President who breached his Presidential oath by unlawfully obstructing me from taking any further steps on the Agyapa Royalties Transactions from 20th October 2020 to 1 November 2020.”

“When I met the President on 23rd October 2020, I received the shock of my life when he demanded that I took no further action on the Agyapa royalties transaction anti-corruption assessment report for another week.

That was when it was divinely revealed to me that the President whom I trusted so much for integrity only looked like the innocent flower of anti-corruption but he was really the mother corruption serpent under the innocent-looking flower,” he said.
