Police officer denied asylum in Canada for allegedly “engaging in crimes against humanity while serving as a police officer in Nigeria”

A former Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Olushola Wazzi Popoola who sought asylum in Canada has been denied over some activities he engaged in as a member of the controversial disbanded Nigerian police unit.

According to court documents, Popoola completed his training and became a member of the Nigerian Police Force in 2002. From 2002 to 2005, he was a member of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad [SARS] in Abuja. He was then transferred to the anti-robbery unit (not to be confused with the SARS) in Lagos until 2009. From 2009 to 2011, he returned to the SARS, this time in Lagos. His resignation was accepted by the Nigerian Police Force in 2015 after the death of his father.

The documents also revealed that “Popoola was found to be inadmissible to Canada because there are reasonable grounds to believe that he engaged in crimes against humanity while serving as a police officer in Nigeria.”
