The Senate, Tuesday, adopted the motion urging it to intervene in the ceaseless extra-judicial killings of innocent Nigerians by some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Police through expeditious passage of the Police reform bill.
Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District lead the voice at the plenary today on how to stop the incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by members of the Nigeria Police.
He said: “Mr. President, distinguished members, I move a motion on Order 42, to explain that in the last week, about three innocent Nigerians have been killed by SARS.
“There have been incessant killings by the happily triggered members of the Nigeria Police especially SARS. I want to say that Nigeria is not in a war situation, Mr. President.
“We shall be having a report on Nigeria Police reform bill tomorrow (Wednesday) and I like the Senate to use the opportunity to reform the Police so that they shall not kill all of us.”
In his remarks, Saraki acknowledged that there was a spate of killings across the nation by members of the Nigeria Police.
He said the Senate shall reform the bill in a manner that would stop killings, adding that the police must not take arms against those they are paid to protect.
Saraki urged the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Police Affairs to present the Committee’s report without delay.
