Frank Mba has insisted that SARS is too important to scrap off. He said on a program on channels Television on Friday October 9,2020 that the unit was set up several years ago in swift response to curb criminal activities in the country.
He however in his words go hard on the protesters of End SARS. His was quoted saying:
If the End SARS movement is a call for the total disbandment of SARS, I will tell you very clearly that it is difficult for any responsible organisation to walk that path taking into cognisance the amount of investment that the government has made in setting up that department and critical role that department is playing,” he said.
Mba also described some of those advocating for the scrapping of the unit as fake people, or people who are benefiting from criminal activities.
“Some of those pushing for #EndSARS are pseudo-activists, people who are desperate for public validation, and people who are looking to be seen as social media influencers. These are the people that post fake news,” he said.
