Northern Governors Rejects Disbandment Of SARS, Says Some Personnel Are Doing Their Work Diligently
KanyiDaily recalls that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu had announced the disbandment of SARS following nationwide protests against alleged human rights violations by the unit.
However, the 19 northern states governors have opposed the disbandment, saying the SARS police unit has been useful in the fight against insecurity in their region.
He said, “SARS is not made up of bad elements alone as it also includes personnel who are doing their work diligently.”
The governor, however, acknowledged that there were divisions in the country concerning the continued existence of the unit.
Lalong therefore called on the federal government to reform the unit to enable it to discharge its functions “optimally”.
Meanwhile, IGP Adamu had already set up a new police unit known as Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), to replace the disbanded SARS.
