SARS: Police appeal to Naira Marley to shelf protest, to tackle excesses


The Nigeria Police have urged Naira Marley and fellow Nigerian youths to be patient with the force over the illegal activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.

The force on its official Twitter page announced that the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba will be holding an Instagram live session with the controversial singer at 11am on Tuesday to discuss issues and concerns of Nigerians on the excesses  of SARS.

The tweet read: “@Naira Marley, the Inspector General of Police wishes to inform Nigerian youths that their voices and complaints on the issues of unprofessional conducts by some SARS operatives have been heard very loudly and clearly.

“Today, Tuesday 6th October, 2020, by 11 am, the Force PRO- DCP Frank Mba will be having a live Instagram chat with Naira Marley to answer questions and discuss the concerns of young Nigerians on the issues of SARS operations and other burning issues. Please stay tuned.”

This came after Naira Marley cancelled a planned #EndSARS protest over the brutality and harassment of youths in the country.

The police tweet added, “The Force is irrevocably committed to changing these narratives and undertaking far-reaching reforms to reposition SARS and other Tactical Squads for better service delivery.”

However, Naira Marley has told the youths to be part of the Instagram conversation and ask any question bothering them on the excesses of some of the members of SARS.
