The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has announced the immediate disbandment of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS).

Adamu made the announcement during a live address on Sunday, 11th October, 2020.

The announcement follows the online and later physical protests by Nigerians against the activities of the SARS operatives which gained much traction last week.

The Police boss announced that the controversial police unit has been dissolved with immediate effect across the 36 states in the federation, and the Federal Capital Territory.

All officers and men previously deployed and serving in the unit are to be redeployed with immediate effect to other units while new plans to combat thieves and other criminal elements by the Police Force will be announced in due time.
