The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, 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 nationwide.
The IGP made the announcement on Sunday afternoon during a press conference at the force headquarters in Abuja.
The IGP reports directly to the president and could only have taken such decision with President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval or authorisation.
The SARS, a police unit, has been accused of extortion, intimidation, harassment and murder of many young Nigerians.
