Sunday Ehindero, an ex-Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has held brief for the scrapped police unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Ehindero who spoke on Wednesday, October 14, in Lagos at the presentation of a memoir of Sunday Akintan, a retired judge of the Supreme Court was quoted as saying that SARS which was recently dissolved by the federal government is not a bad police unit.

According to Ehindero, the dissolved police unit was not a bad outfit. He however blamed the atrocities committed by men of the squad on a few bad eggs.

He said: “A bad egg will always corrupt others. So, the unit is not a bad outfit, we only have bad operators in the unit now.”

The former boss, however, supported the calls for the reform of the disbanded squad, noting that it has “deviated” from its original mandate, which is fighting robbery, throwing his weight behind the calls for a comprehensive reform of the entire policing system.

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday, October 11, announced the dissolution of SARS after days of nationwide #EndSARS protests against the brutality of the operatives.
