FULANI Kwajafa, the police officer who created the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), has expressed regret over creating the disbanded police unit.

Speaking in an interview on BBC Hausa, the retired police commissioner stated that the police unit has acted differently from its founding objectives.

Kwajafa added that the disheartening news he’s been receiving has made him think there are armed robbers among the new crop of SARS operatives.

He said, “My name is Fulani Kwajafa. I entered the Nigeria Police Force in 1984.

Then robbery was prevalent, this was when Buhari was Head of State.

He (Buhari) got a lot of complaints that people were stealing from each other, robbing people — he told me and Mr. Inyang, the then IGP, that we must do something about it or be fired.

“Mr. Inyang called me and told me to come up with a plan to save the country from thieves, so I said okay. I told him to give me his trust, resources and officers to start work.

“After four months of creating SARS, there was peace, those who were not caught ran, and those who were caught were sent to prison.”

He noted that the operations of SARS while it lasted were terrible, adding that the willful disregard for the law displayed by the unit was disheartening.

Kwajafa said, “This thing frustrates me, there is no reason why because someone commits a crime that the person should be killed. There are laws and no one will give an order that if you see armed robbers kill the person.

“I have been hearing disheartening news, to the extent that I have thought to myself that it seems among the SARS officials, there are armed robbers.

“This is not why we created SARS, the reason is completely different, this is not the purpose. In fact, when I am mentioned as the creator of SARS, I feel ashamed. It’s a thing of regret for me.

“If I had known it would be like this, I wouldn’t have created it because people who know when I established the unit always say to be, is it not Kwajafa’s baby? But this is not what I birthed; it has been changed.”
