Students of Nile University of Nigeria, Abuja, almost embarrassed the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, after he claimed Nigerians will beg for the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
It was gathered that Keyamo was at the institution to deliver a lecture.
Speaking during the lecture, Keyamo blamed the worsening insecurity in Nigeria on the disbandment of SARS.
The Minister added that he was sure that Nigerians will be the ones calling and begging for SARS to come back, but the students, who were about 100 in number jeered at him.
“Can anyone now say #EndOperationLifeDole? Who can end it? I’m sure Boko Haram will March into Abuja. There was a time Boko Haram entered Abuja. So that’s the challenge, to maintain that security is fully maintained.
“That was the same thing we saw between SARS and human rights then, we have seen the porosity of removing security now because we wanted human rights at all cost. We ended SARS, we now see the problems we are facing,” Keyamo said.
