Breaking: Finally IGP ends SARS

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has announced the disbanding of the Nigerian Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the Federal Capital Territory and all 36 state police commands.

The IGP made the announcement at a press briefing in Abuja on Sunday, stating that all officers who served within the unit are to be redeployed and absorbed into other units with immediate effect.

According to him, “New policing arrangements to address the offences of armed robbery, and other violent crimes that fall within the mandate of the dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad shall be presented in due course. To deal with the reports of crimes committed against citizens, an investigation team will be constituted which will include civil society organisations for transparency, and culprits will be punished.”

He mentioned that, “A Citizens and Strategic Stakeholders’ Forum will be formed to regularly interface with the leadership of the police at all levels and advice on police activities.”

He ended his briefing by commending the majority of the Nigerian Police Force who are diligently going about their duties, guided by the dictates of the rule of law, honour and professionalism. He encouraged them to sustain their sense of national service, sacrifice, patriotism and commitment to crime fighting, that their efforts are very much appreciated.
