According to The Cable, Moshood said SARS is doing “fantastically well” in the country and there hasn’t been any violation of human rights.
He said: "As we speak, SARS is doing fantastically well across the country in reducing incidents of robbery to the barest minimum… they are doing very, very well.
"There has not been any specific violation of human rights against any SARS personnel. So anybody that is spreading such a rumour is not doing the nation any good.
"SARS has no excesses and when there is any, we do investigate.
"The call for SARS to be scrapped should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. Anybody calling for their proscription is not doing the nation any good and such people should be suspected as having something to hide."
This comes after people shared horrifying experiences they witnessed in the hands of SARS officers on social media.
Reacting further, Moshood said that the police does not permit the violation of human rights by its men, and the ones who do so are apprehended.
He said: "Accessibility (to the police in cases of complaints) is very possible, he said, adding:
“We do not take any infraction or violation of human right of any Nigerian likely. You know that so many police officers have been dismissed and even charged to court.
"So, Nigerians should not give in to insinuations from people that just come to the social media and start spreading falsehood. Such people spreading such information may likely be armed robbers themselves.
"There are laid down rules for police procedures and any police officer that go beyond boundary to do something outrageous which is against the law is apprehended."
Many people had accused the police authorities of being insensitive to the masses even as negative reports are never tackled but met with denials.
Recently, the Nigeria police was rated as the worst in the world by a 2016 World Internal Security and Police Index International, WISPI report. But, the police came out to deny the report.
