The Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Frank Mba, says the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a special arm of the Force, cannot be scrapped because of the ongoing fight against crimes in the country. He, however, said the Force is currently reforming the operations of SARS officers nationwide to curtail their excesses.
ZIONPAY NEWS had earlier reported that the singer cancelled a planned demonstration against SARS recklessness on Tuesday morning. There has been renewed outrage across the country over the harassment, extortion and extra-judicial killings of innocent Nigerians by SARS operatives
Speaking on Tuesday, Mba said the IGP and the Force were committed to reforming SARS. He said,
“What we need to do is to reform SARS and make them responsive, responsible and make them to work in accordance with laid down procedures. We need them to continue to respond to violent crimes. We need them to continue to respond to armed robberies. We need them to continue to respond to kidnappings.”
