The inspector General of police, IGP, Adamu Adamu, has stated that this is the first time ever that the rogue police unit SARS has been banned.
Recall several media outlets had reported in the last couple of years that the tactical unit had been banned on four different occasions including the most recent one.
The IG however said that all they’d tried to do was reform and that they finally decided to ban the unit because the police is meant to cater to the public and honor their wishes.
