The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has reacted to reports that it is set to bring back the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

There had been rumours of the police chief planning to reintroduce the disbanded unit. However, a statement released by the spokesperson of the police force, Frank Mba, said that the story is not true.

Read the statement below:

 

  ”The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to a false news report making the rounds online and offline suggesting that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc (+), NPM, fdc has ordered the re-establishment of the defunct Special Anti – Robbery Squad (SARS). The Force wishes to categorially emphasize that there is no plan whatsoever to bring back the disbanded SARS. SARS is gone for good and will not resurrect under any guise whatsoever.

“The IGP notes that the Force has since reorganized its operational structure to fill the vacuum created by the disbandment of SARS.

“Currently, the leadership of the Force is focused on efforts at deepening reforms within the Police and bequeathing Nigerans a Police Force that will be more effective, efficient, technology-driven, humane, and Rule of Law-compliant.

“The IGP, therefore, calls on members of the public to disregard the report which is absolutely false and deliberately intended to disinform and misinform members of the public. ”
