NEWS: Acting IGP Mohammed Adamu Orders Disbandment Of FSARS, Others


The Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has decentralised the operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, which was earlier centralised by his predecessor, Ibrahim Idris.

The former IG had placed the unit under the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (Operations), as part of the reforms of the squad.

But Adamu, who met with Command Commissioners of Police and other senior officers in Abuja on Monday (today), explained that the squad will henceforth operate under the state Commissioners of Police, while the Force headquarters unit would be under the DIG, Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.


He said that a comprehensive reform in terms of ethics, mode of operation, nomenclature and orientation, function delineation command and control and accountability mechanism of SARS will be undertaken.

Adamu also disbanded all quasi-investigation and operations outfits, including the Special Investigation Panel, Special Tactical Squad, IG Monitoring and Intelligence Team, among others.

The Acting IG further announced the setting-up of a Special Election Investigation Team tasked with the exclusive function of investigating and prosecuting electoral offenders.
