In the finest spirit of democratic, citizen-centred and community policing, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has on Sunday October 11 this year dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) across the 36 State Police Commands and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where they hitherto existed.
He said the operatives will be redeployed to other police formations and commands.
Adamu made this announcement in a live broadcast on Sunday.
The announcement came after days of online and offline protests against the brutality and extra-judicial killings by SARS operatives nationwide.
At the briefing, the IGP said, “The Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force otherwise known as SARS is hereby dissolved in all the 36 states police command and the Federal Capital Territory.”Follow us on social media
