The governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle has said that the scrapped FSARS police unit is still required in the state to keep the peace.

He said the disbanded police unit helped in reducing banditry in the state.

Matawalle described scrapping the useful police unit as throwing away the baby along with the bath water.

The governor said he would discuss with President Muhammadu Buhari as the state needs FSARS or its equivalent because they have seen their positive impact in spite of their excesses.

“I will personally seek an audience with Mr. President on this issue. We need the FSARS or its equivalent in Zamfara state because we have seen their positive impact in spite of their alleged excesses”, Matawalle said.


  1. Oga it is not “alleged” in the south. They committed heinous atrocities in the southern part of the country. They knew even if they point a gun to the head of 75% of the youths in the north, they could not get something from them.

  2. Oga, SARS will not like to come to Zamfara being that there are no rich youths with money to extort and exploit.. They cannot exploit the feudalistic kids in the north.
