The Police Public Relation officer, Jimoh Moshood has told Nigerians to be wary of their use of social media saying the #EndSARS was started by someone with an ulterior motive. The Police spokesperson said this on Tuesday, when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television Breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.
“Somebody who has an ulterior motive put up the hashtag and said End SARS now. Nigerians should be mindful because the social media is very porous. What is the cause of the outcry in the first place? This was why the IGP was concerned about the cause of the outcry. People should be mindful of the intention of the person that put up the hashtag that people are falling into it,” he said.
Moshood also said the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) has been in operation for over 40 years and those calling for a scrap of the squad should disabuse their minds as they are performing their duties well.
