The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called for an administrative or judicial investigation into the disbanded, Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.

Rev. Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, the President of CAN, in a statement, called on the country’s security agencies to be reformed and transformed into a modern security architecture that befits the contemporary challenges such as terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, and herdsmen attacks.

CAN say the investigation is aimed at bringing the culprits to book not to allow the bad eggs among them corrupt other units or continue with their old habit of lawlessness.

CAN maintain that redevelopment of the officers and men of the disbanded unit to other units without sanctioning the rotten eggs among them is not the solution to the problem.

However, CAN appreciates the prompt and positive responses of the Federal Government in disbanding SARS.

“It is unprecedented in the recent history of our country, and it is praiseworthy. This is what democracy is all about.”

The body, however, acknowledges the spontaneous nature of protest nationwide but regrets the loss of lives and the destruction of some property in the cause of the mass actions.

“We ask God to console and comfort all the bereaved as he heals those who are recuperating in the hospitals,” it prayed.
