Protest as Rivers govt alleges SARS threat to Wike aide’s life

PORT HARCOURT – RIVERS State Government,
RVSG, has alleged threat by men of the Police
Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to kill
Senior Special Assistant to the State Governor
on Social Media, Marshal Obuzor.
Rivers Youths after their protest march
against SARs Brutality in Port Harcourt on
Thursday.
The development Thursday provoked street
protest in Port Harcourt by teeming youths in
Rivers who called for end to reported recurring
SARs brutality and extrajudicial murders across
the state.
The SARs Operatives had on Monday, around
Mandela Car Wash in Old GRA, Port Harcourt,
reportedly entrapped and brutalised Obuzor and
inflicted injuries on him with machetes and rods.
The victim, Obuzor, narrated to the protesters,
including youth professionals and Rivers
leadership of the National Youth Council of
Nigeria, gathered at the Port Harcourt Council
secretariat, that SARS led by one Sgt Clever
Kporoko left him with a ruptured ear.
Medical Examinations by consultants at the
Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital is said
to have indicated that Obuzor would require
surgical procedures in France to correct the
ruptured ear.
‘In Public view, they used machetes and rods to
beat me and seized my phones. They repeatedly
threatened to kill me. Even the Government
Official who intervened was threatened with
death. I was surprised that SARs has gotten to
this stage where they don’t care that people are
watching”, Obuzor said.
The protesters also matched to the Rivers State
Police Command where they submitted the two
petitions with assurance from the authorities to
investigate the issues and any SARs operative
found wanting liable to face the wrath of the law.
Obuzor had told the police authorities that the
petition to the Rivers Police Commissioner
demanded an end to SARS Brutality across the
state, saying that enough is enough.
Adokiye Ogunobere, Publicity Secretary NYCN,
Rivers chapter, said, “Rivers Youths write to
formally register our protest on the illegal
activities of operatives of SARS across the 23
Local Government Areas of the state.
