BREAKING: IGP, Adamu Dissolves SARS, Reveals Next Line Of Action

Muhammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police has bowed to pressures and dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad popularly known as SARS.

This is coming after several Nigerians including celebrities have shown their displeasure and protested over continued brutalities and killings perpetuated by SARS officers.

The dissolution of the unit was directed by the police boss on Sunday during a press conference at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

The IGP, while noting that the dissolution of SARS is in response to the yearnings of the Nigerian people, observes that by this dissolution, all officers and men of the now defunct Special Anti-robbery Squad are being redeployed with immediate effect.

The IGP notes that the Force is not oblivious of the ever present need to combat armed robbery, kidnapping and other violent crimes in the country which was before now the core mandate of the erstwhile Squad. He assures that a new policing arrangement to address anticipated policing gaps the dissolution of SARS would cause has been evolved and shall be announced in due course.

Meanwhile, as part of measures to prevent a re-occurrence of events that gave rise to the dissolution of SARS, a Citizens’ and Strategic Stakeholders’ Forum is being formed to regularly interface with Police leadership at all levels and advise on police activities as they affect the general public.
