Shehu Sani, former senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th senate, has lambasted Northern Governors over their support for the Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS.
The former Senator in a tweet on his verified twitter handle on Friday, condemned their declaration of support for (SARS), wondering why there is insecurity in the region if the security unit was functional.
Dear Northern Governors,
If SARS is working in the North why hasn’t kidnappings and killings by Bandits and Terrorists continues unabated?#EndsSARS

He tweeted, “Dear Northern Governors, if SARS is working in the North, why has kidnappings and killings by bandits and terrorists continued unabated?
”#EndsSARS”, Sani wrote.
Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, spoke on Thursday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
The Chairman, Northern Governors Forum, said though the government has approved the scrapping of the unit, the decision should be reconsidered.
“Some people said they don’t want SARS, some said they want SARS but a reformed SARS…Let us not just say we are throwing away the baby with bath water. If there are good ones, you don’t chase them away”, Lalong said.
