A Muslim influencer and reformist Imam, Mohammad Tawhidi, popularly known as Imam of Peace, says Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, cannot protect Nigerians from the brutality carried out by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Naija News reports that protesting youths in Nigeria are agitating for the end to Police brutalization and extra judicial killings of Nigerians. The protesters have been on the streets for more than a week now, protesting the brutalities, humiliation, and extortion of Nigerians, especially the youths.

The protesters demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a police unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi, using a hashtag: #EndSARS.

On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu disbanded SARS following a widespread protest from Nigerians worldwide.

However, since the announcement that SARS has been scrapped, the protesters have refused to leave the streets, which a Presidential Advisory Committee says might force the Federal Government to take drastic measures against the protesting youths.

Reacting to the ongoing #EndSARS protests across various cities in Nigeria in a post on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Friday morning, October 16, two months after he called for the immediate arrest of the Nigerian President, Imam of Peace told Nigerians not to “expect the person who freed thousands of Boko Haram terrorists to protect you from SARS.”

Imam of Peace who described President Buhari as the “biggest criminal in Africa“, added that “there needs to be an international inquiry about this spike in terrorism against innocent civilians.”

The Muslim influencer tweeted: “Buhari is the biggest criminal in Africa. Do not expect the person who freed thousands of Boko Haram terrorists to protect you from SARS. There needs to be an international inquiry about this spike in terrorism against innocent civilians.”

In another tweet, Imam of Peace said:  “The @UN Security Council and United States @StateDept need to both investigate Buhari’s corruption and designate SARS and Fulani militants as terrorists.”
