….Puts Other Measures In Place To Protect The Citizens
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, has dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) across the 36 State Police Commands and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where they hitherto existed.

Adamu made this known on Sunday following widespread protest to end SARS brutality across the nation.

In a statement to Independent, DCP Frank Mba, Force Spokesperson said the decision is in the finest spirit of democratic, citizen-centred and community policing”.

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.

He said, “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.
