The Nigerian Government has bowed to rising pressure due to ongoing protests and banned the police tactical unit, SARS, effective immediately.
The IGP of police, Adamu Adamu, made this known in Abuja moments ago as he announced that the operatives would be immediately withdrawn from the streets and provisions made to tackle robberies.
The IG made five points in his declaration which included the formation of a forum that would allow citizens direct contact with all levels of the police.
Meanwhile the protests continue to rage as protesters are being tear gassed and sprayed in different locations.
