Training Of New Police Unit To Replace SARS Begins Next Week-IGP



Following the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has revealed that a new unit to replace SARS will be announced soon.

According to Adamu, the new police unit will begin training next week.

He disclosed this during Davido’s visit to his office on Monday, October 12, over the ongoing #ENDSARS protests.

Adamu revealed that there is a need to get a new structure to carry out the duties of the defunct police unit, adding that the new unit will be intelligence-driven, properly trained, and only will act on special occasions that require their attention.

He said;


“We just disbanded yesterday so protesters should calm down and give us time to fix the problem. The general public will be part of the process of getting a new outfit.

“I’m talking to you so I will keep talking to many others and get civil societies involved and get their input towards the new unit.”


On the issue of compensating families of those affected by SARS brutality, the IGP said it would be addressed when investigations are concluded.


Adamu further revealed that though the officers of the disbanded SARS would be retrained and given other responsibilities in the Force, they will not be reabsorbed into the new unit.
