The End of SARS???

With just a few weeks into the 2019 general elections, the acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, the Nigerian Police has taken everyone by surprise by announcing that Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARS) will be disbanded.

The Special Anti-Robbery is notoriously known for the alleged killings, torment and harassment of Nigerian citizens.

Only in August 2018, the then-acting president, Vice-president Professor Yemi Osinbajo directed former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris to overhaul the management and activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). Thereafter, it was changed to Federal Special Anti-robbery Robbery Squad (FSARS). By September, the police commenced a two-week training on human rights for Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARS) commanders nationwide to reposition the outfit.

However, with this new move, Segun Awosanya (ENDSARS Convener) Amnesty International are among those who believe that the disbandment means going back.

Amidst all of this, a lot of Nigerians are not too pleased with this new arrangement.
