Osinbajo Orders IGP To ‘Overhaul’ SARS
Nigeria’s Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has ordered the immediate “overhaul’ of Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) which has been a subject of debate for more than six months.
Many Nigerians have earlier complained that the SARS has become a tool to harass and brutalise them
In some instances, men of the SARS were alleged of killing innocent Nigerians over reported refusal to pay bribe.
“Following persistent complaints and reports on the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) that border on allegations of human rights violations, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo SAN, Acting-President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, has directed the Inspector General of Police to, with immediate effect, overhaul the management and activities of SARS,” Osinbajo spokesman, Laolu Akande said in statement on Tuesday
