Biafra political activist and leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has claimed that the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) “is worse than Boko Haram”, AllNews reports.
Kanu made this claim in his routine online broadcast on Monday morning.
“Boko Haram is better than SARS,” Kanu asserrted.
“Do you know why?
“Because Boko Haram will not ask you to go to ATM, empty your account before they kill you.
“At least, Boko Haram don’t sell human parts.
“They don’t sell the organs of their victims.
“As brutal as they are.
“As condemnable as their actions may be.
“There is no way anybody can compare Boko Haram to SARS.
“It is not possible.
“SARS is worse than Boko Haram.
“Boko Haram doesn’t pretend.
“You know their modus operandi.
“You know the reason why they are doing what they are doing.
“And by the way, it was the Nigerian government that caused Boko Haram to become violent.”
“Boko Haram was peaceful.
“It was the killing of their leader, Mohammed Yusuf that led them into arms struggle.
“The fact is, we have Boko Haram today due to the high-handedness of the governmental structure obtainable in Nigeria.
“Boko Haram is better than SARS.”
Controversial Kanu further encouraged all those who haven’t gone out for the protests to “please go out”.
