The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has condemned the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

He cited the alleged shooting of a man by operatives of SARS in his constituency in Ughelli, Delta State over the victim’s alleged refusal to allow the operatives to search his phone as well as another shooting of a youth in the town by men of the ‘Operation Delta Safe’ over the same reason.
He advised Youth in the area to remain law abiding as he called on the police to fish out the culprits for prosecution to serve as deterrent.
