It's Not Over Yet!! Nigerians React As IGP Announces New Replacement For Sars. (Photos).


On Sunday 11th October, 2020 The Inspector General of the Nigerian Police Force Announced the dissolution of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS). The long awaited news was welcomed gladly by the members of the public who have been expecting the government to heed their calls and cries. This Announcement came after days of intense protest by the youth who are mostly victimized. In a press conference, the IGP announced that the unit has been dissolved and that members of the units will be relocated to other units of the Force. 

Few minutes after the Statement, the IGP in another press release announced that a new Unit will be created to replace SARS. In his words "He assures that a new policing arrangement to address anticipated policing gaps the dissolution of SARS would cause has been evolved and shall be announced in due course".

This however has caused an uproar amongst Nigerians as they feel SARS is just being re-branded.
