Lagos State House of Assembly has urged Federal Government and Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to proscribe Federal Special Anti-Robbery (FSARS) while asking for a new and well-structured security outfit in its place.
The House also called on the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, to provide protection for the protesters while they express their grievances.
The call was made at an emergency sitting presided over by the Speaker of the House, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, to add a voice to the current call across the nation for an end to the widely reported alleged inhuman activities of the body.
The call was in tandem with the protest organised by some residents in Lagos demanding for an end to F-SARS.
