Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Felix Obuah has expressed concern over what he described as the continued recklessness and lawless activities by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state.

While condemning last Saturday’s killing of three Ogoni youths in Luebe community in Nyor-Khana district of Khana Local Government Area of the state, said the operations of this particular unit of the Police Command have become a source of woes and anguish to the people of Rivers State.

He wondered why since the deployment of the current Commander of the Squad, Akin Fakorede, to the state, lawless and unprofessional operations had continued unabated.

The PDP Chairman alleged that rather than protect lives and property of Rivers people, which they are paid to do statutorily, the Police team had taken pride in destroying lives, causing pains to the people, turning to road nuisance, political thugs and armed gang to the All Progressives Congress (APC), and therefore, constituting a security threat to the nation’s democracy and peace in Rivers State.

“It is quite pathetic and painful that lives of these three young men and many more have just been cut short by operatives of the SARS, who reportedly were on illegal oil bunkering business in that Ogoni community, as they were seen escorting illegally refined crude oil to the point of sale, where they (the SARS Operatives) were to be paid huge amount of money for the oil deal,” Obuah noted.

He further said this incident is as worrisome as that which took place almost simultaneously last Saturday, in which another team of SARS operatives, attached to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, led by Fakorede, reportedly attacked the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, while on inspection tour of projects in Port Harcourt.

Obuah warned that the trend must stop, while reiterating his earlier call for the removal of the SARS Commander.

He pointed out that President Muhammadu Buhari must match his words with action in his claim of being the President ‘for everybody and for nobody’.

“President Buhari needs to save lives of Rivers People and our dear Governor from Fakorede, his paymasters and killing squads,” the PDP Chairman emphasised.

He also commiserated with the people of Ogoni, the Luebe Community and families of the three murdered youths, assuring them that justice must prevail in the case.

He further called on the State Commissioner of Police and the Police high command to ensure perpetrators of these dastardly acts are arrested and prosecuted accordingly, otherwise the Police image will continue to go sour, under the present Inspector General of Police (IGP).
