SARS: Osinbajo Reacts To IGP’s Ban Of FSARS From Routine Patrol




Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has reacted to the banning of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) from routine patrol.

Reacting to the development, Osinbajo, commended the decision of Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu.

Speaking to State House reporters at his residence in Abuja on Sunday, October 4, Osinbajo described the routine attacks on young people as infuriating, condemning the actions of some operatives he called bad “eggs of the Force”, while calling on the police to stick to their mandates.

The vice president also applauded the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) for speaking up against injustices meted out on young Nigerians by some security operatives.

Recall that the IGP had in response to call and agitation from Nigerians banned personnel of the FSARS from carrying out routine protocols.

This new directive from the IGP also affects operatives of other tactical squads of the police such as the Special Tactical Squad (STS), Intelligence Response Team (IRT), and the Anti-Cultism Squad.

According to the order, the operatives are to desist from carrying out routine patrols and other conventional low-risk duties – stop and search duties, checkpoints, mounting of roadblocks, and traffic checks.
