Gov Matawalle wants defunct SARS operatives deployed to Zamfara


Zamfara Governor Bello Matawalle has praised operatives of the scrapped Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and wished to have them deployed to the State.

Matawalle posited this on arrival in Gusau, the state capital from Kaduna where he attended meeting of Northern Governors.

The governor lavished praise on operatives of the defunct SARS saying they were key factors in the stride the state recorded in the areas of peace and security.

“We have recorded tremendous development in the area of peace building the Zamfara date with the commitment and professional contribution and support of the FSARS of the Nigeria Police,” he said.

Matawalle added that he was in awe of the maligned defunct police unit and is in the process of opening discussion with President Mmuhammadu Buhari on how its officers would be deployed to Zamfara.

His word, “I will personally seek audience with Mr President on this issue. We need the FSARS or its equivalent in Zamfara state because we have seen their positive impact in spite their alleged excesses.”
