The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) accused the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of supporting the creation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), the recently disbanded controversial Nigerian Police Force unit.
People of Nigeria have renewed their rebellion against unprofessional actions by SARS operatives, including the bullying and extortion of innocent citizens.
Public outcry, both on social media and on the streets of some of the country’s cities, eventually forced the Inspector General of Police to announce on Sunday 11 October 2020 that the SARS unit had been disbanded with immediate effect.
As reactions continue to pour in over the dissolution of the SARS unit, Mallam Yekini Nabena, the APC National Deputy Publicity Secretary on Monday, 12th October alleged that the PDP created SARS as an election-rigging tool.
He made the allegation in a post on his Twitter page where he wrote: “PDP created the leviathan in SARS to Rigg elections.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians have returned to the streets again on Monday demanding that the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari must address the citizens and make an executive order to confirm the scrapping of the police unit for them to accept government action in true fate.
The protesters are also demanding the release of all arrested protesters.
This has led to early morning gridlock as commuters and motorists on their way to work were on standstill.
