In a bid to further demonstrate his support for the ongoing #EndSARS protest, Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on Monday visited the defunct office of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force in Enugu.

The visit was to confirm that the facility has been closed in compliance with the Federal Government’s directives based on the demands of the protesting youth against SARS brutality in the country.

The governor who was accompanied by the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Miletus Eze and his Information counterpart, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, was received by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmad Abdurrahman, who took him around the facilities including the empty cells.
