President Buhari bows to Nigerians, dissolves SARS as Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, has announced the dissolution of the dreaded police formation, Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS or FSARS). The dissolution is coming on the hills of the #EndSARS protest which has rocked the Nation over days now.
This is coming after the police unit, SARS has been accused of extortion, intimidation, and murder of many young Nigerians.
It’s believed that such decision is coming from President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval or authorisation since the IGP reports directly to the president. The IGP made the announcement on Sunday afternoon during a press conference at the force headquarters in Abuja.
