The Inspector-general of Police Mohammed Adamu has announced the immediate dissolving of the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and all men of the police unit transfer to other police units across the country.

This is coming on the heels of the demand by Nigerians, especially youth who for days now have taken to the street to protest the wanton killing, brutality, and extortion by the SARS unit of the Nigerian police force.

Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu and the Federal government have bow down to pressure as the Nigerian people are not willing to back down from the call to have the police Anti-Robbery unit disbanded. The SARS unit of the police has in the past gone through various forms of reforms and this has done little or nothing in reducing the misuse of power by the police unit. According to the Announcement made by the Inspector-General of police Mohammed Adamu here are 5 things you should know.

  1. The Inspector General of police has dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) across all the Thirsty-Six (36) State Commands and the federal capital territory (FCT) with immediate effect.
  2. All Officers and men serving in the Unit will be redeployed to other police Commands, Formations and Units.
  3. A new policing arrangement for tackling the offences of Armed-Robbery and other violent crimes will be unveiled to the public soon.
  4. A citizen and Strategic Stakeholders Forum will be launched to provide an avenue for citizens to regularly interface and advise the police authority on issues touching on the general public.
  5. To deal with the report of crimes committed against citizens, an investigative Team will be constituted which will include Civil Society Organizations and culprits will be punished.

The announcement was signed by the Force PRO DCP Frank Mba

The campaign and protest by Nigerians to have the police unit started on Twitter when a viral video of a police killing and driving away with a car of a young man in Asaba the Delta State capital.  On Friday Protestants took to streets across the country calling for the immediate disbandment of the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).  The protest drew the attention of both local and international media.

The announcement of the immediate dissolving of the SARS unit by the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu is a victory for the Nigeria youth and people, who have decided to take their fate in their hands.
