BREAKING! Inspector General Of Police Bans SARS From Conducting “Stop And Search” Operations

The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has banned the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force from conducting stop and search operations on roads except when necessary.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some group of Nigerians recently on social media, called for the scrapping of SARS over alleged harassment of innocent Nigerians, using the #EndSARS. Following the allegation, the Inspector- General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, promised to restructure and reposition the unit for effective service delivery. Idris also warned members of the group against acting as body-guards, delving into land matters and debt collection that were considered civil.

He further warned that members of the unit must only embark on operations with the permission of the commissioner of police in charge of SARS in the police commands.

“You must operate in official uniform clearly marked for identification. I just want to warn you all here that any officer caught engaging in these activities will be dealt with accordingly. The Nigeria Police force under my leadership shall operate strictly guided by the human rights principles as enshrined in the United Nations charter on human rights” he said.

He mandated the Inspector-General of police’s monitoring units and the X-squad and other over sights unit of the force to monitor the activities of the SARS. The police boss noted that the establishment of the unit was due to activities of the men of the underworld.

He said that as part of measures to check the unit, they would be solely mandated to confront only armed robbery cases and violent crimes in the country, Idris also said that men deployed to SARS would undergo training, continuous assessment and psychometric test to determine their suitability or otherwise.

  1. SARS harassment and brutality in Lagos state is becoming something else, we barely differentiate SARS and armed robbers, because once their stop you and put you inside their vehicle and found you Innocent you need to bail yourself or their lay allegations on you.# NIGERIAWHEREAREWEHEADINGTO?#

  2. SARS are not human beings. They needed a deserving treatment lIke that of BENIN—FOUR policemen attached to Sabongida-Ora Division that were killed by unknown persons probably corrupt police men of their own kind at the road intersection between Oke-Ora and Avbiosi in Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State.
    Of all the countries God made, Nigeria is the worst of them all were citizens of the country suffer ill from the hands of those that should be helping them. One I went to Nnewi SARS quarter to bail someone accused of kidnapping, I was made to bail that person on another name of someone they took out in the night and killed in an unknown place.
    They see their selves as gods and untouchables. They break the laws they should uphold. They detain the innocent people with intent to extort them. They shut at random and beat people mercilessly with sadistic mind. They torture people in great numbers and their DPOs always protect them.
    Every police DPO recieves accounts everyday in the evenings from every squadron of police.
    Every police officer knows he must pay tribute to Oga on daily bases even the once at the counter. You must pay Its DPO everyday or you will be transferred to no happening places around the country. As Oga kpatakpata extorts everyone else below him, everyone else must extort someone by intimidations by the use of any available torture and any worst case scenarios. It is better to dissolve SARS officers altogether and I don’t mean dissolving them and letting them loose like that, because they will make the streets unsafe and turn up criminals the worst kinds. No! Dissolve SARS and tie each one on the drum and shoot all of them dead. Not one of them is good. They are all parasites, leachers and armed robbers that borrow their weapons to armed robbers for armed robbery shares. I support the notion for their complete and utter destruction. The nation will never stand up with them in it; They are desperately evil men.
