Police Commissioner Reveals What Will Happen To Any SARS Officer Who Disobeys IGP’s Directives
The Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Nwachukwu Enwonwu has said severe disciplinary sanction will be inflicted on any personnel that flouts the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu’s directives on the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
According to NAN, Enwonwu issued the warning during a retirement party, organised for Attahiru Isah, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) in charge of administration, on Monday in Ibadan.
Recall that Adamu had, on Sunday, announced the ban on FSARS and other tactical teams from carrying out routine stop-and-search duties, patrols and checking of electronic gadgets, among others.
Enwonwu, who said that the directive wasn’t the first to be issued by the IGP, however, disclosed that the latest directive would be the last on the issue.
The CP also stated that his command would work on grey areas and put an end to it.
He said: “We’ll make sure we work on the grey areas, particularly routine patrols, which will have to stop. FSARS will be confined to only investigation and response to distress calls when the need arises.
“The message has been sent out, not only to SARS but also, to other tactical teams. The issue of checking people’s electronics gadgets like phones, laptops doesn’t arise again, as we’ve warned them against that.
“If anyone flouts the IGP’s directive by crossing the red line, a severe disciplinary sanction will be meted out on such an individual.”
