On Monday, Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu said plans for a new police unit to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) would begin next week.
On Sunday, the IGP declared the disbanding of the special Anti-Robbery squad from the police commands in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory ( FCT).
Adamu, who said this when he was visited at the headquarters of the Abuja Force by a pop celebrity, David Adeleke alias Davido, promised to probe all cases of violence committed by SARS operatives and book the culprits.
The new outfit, he said, would be intelligence-driven, well-trained, and operate only on occasions when their attention was warranted.
The IGP stressed that the squad would be comprised of new personnel with a new orientation.
Though Davido was accused of denying the fact that he protested with other nigerians during his meeting with the IG ,in a statement release by the pop artist he said his word were picked out of the context he said he was trying to explain that he didn’t go there to cost more harm but to calm the situation because he was feels the pain of every nigerian
