Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state on Tuesday said that the people of Rivers have suffered and were killed more by the disbanded SARS than any other state in Nigeria.
He told a crowd of protesters at the state government house that when he was crying against SARS, many Nigerians were saying he was politicising the issue, he said now it is clear to everyone that he was not playing politics.
He added that now that other states are receiving the sledgehammer of SARS and they are now weeping, he will not join them to weep, because when he called no one listened to him.
Wike said he speaks without fear of favour. Protest against the notorious police unit in Nigeria has gained serious strength globally and all Nigerians have risen against the SARS.
This is one of the biggest move Nigerians have made over the years and the swift response of the government to the disbandment of the notorious police unit is worthy of commendation.
This shows that Nigerians can, in unity, achieve any worthwhile cause if all facets of society team up against such anomaly.
