Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has spoken out concerning incessant harassment of Nigerian youths by Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).

The social media was agog on Saturday with complaints from Nigerians about brutal treatments by SARS operatives especially in Lagos.

Atiku in his tweets urged the Nigeria police and the National Assembly to look into the complaints and stop harassing the youths.

He wrote, “The arbitrary harassment of young Nigerians by Police (who should be protecting them) has no place in a democratic society.

“The #EndSARS protest shows Nigerian youth are upset and the matter needs urgent attention.
