He wrote:

Today, being Tuesday; October 13, 2020, I came under Order 43 of the Senate Rules to present a motion commending the Inspector General of Police; IGP Mohammed Adamu for his decision to dissolve the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in response to the nationwide#EndSars agitation, and the Nigerian youths for their resilience and tenacity in standing against Police brutality.

Undoubtedly, the dissolution of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) is a very timely and welcome development which I commended the Inspector General of Police for his responsiveness in addressing the urgent concerns of Nigerians.

I also specially stood on the floor of the Senate to salute the patriotic zeal, resilience and resolve of Nigerian youths who stood to resist police brutality in the face of daunting circumstances. By virtue of this feat, Nigerian youths can hold their heads high as people of valor that stood tall to be counted when history needed them the most.

As the leader of the YPP Senate Caucus and National Leader of the Young Progressives Party which is deeply committed to defending and promoting the rights, welfare and aspirations of young Nigerians, I reassured Nigerian youths of the YPP Caucus in the National Assembly’s unwavering commitment to continually deploying the instrumentality of the legislature to engage relevant authorities with a view to entrenching institutional reforms and frameworks that will reposition the Police Force to uphold and safeguard the fundamental rights of Nigerian citizens as well as ensure cooperation and partnership between the Police and citizens in maintaining peace and combating crime.

Conclusively, I proffered further decisive measures needed to be taken in order to achieve a comprehensive and systemic reform that will enable the Nigerian Police Force become more effective and accountable in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities.
In view of points raised by me, the Senate accordingly resolved to urge the Inspector General of Police to:

  1. Immediately release all arrested protesters and grant independent legal practitioners access to inmates across all SARS detention facilities nationwide.
  2. Establish a body saddled with enforcing disciplinary action against police officers caught in any unwarranted, dubious and violent act against Nigerian citizens.
  3. Organize compulsory quarterly performance reviews for all police officers and functioning units/departments across all states to ensure that all police officers are held accountable for their actions.
  4. Proscribe illegal stopping and checking of phones without an official search warrant as well as digitize all security intelligence apparatus to adopt information technology in carrying out investigations.

Finally, I wholeheartedly wish to applaud Nigerians most especially our youths for fighting for the rights of the Nigerian citizenry, it is my expectation that the Inspector General of Police will reform the Nigerian Police Force in a manner that is more responsive to the needs of the general public with the values of fairness, justice and equity.
