#ENDSARS: The New Police Unit Begins Training Next Week – IGP

Following the announcement of the disbandment of the Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS), the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has assured that the training of a new police unit to take over from the disbanded unit (SARS) will commence next week.

Adamu said this during a meeting  with  popular musician, David Adeleke aka Davido  in his office on Monday over the ongoing #ENDSARS protests.

He said with SARS scrapped, there was need to put a new structure in place in order to execute the duties the defunct police unit was carrying out, which is fighting violent crimes.

He further said that the new unit would be intelligence -driven, properly trained and only act on special occasions that require their attention.

He said the unit would be made up of fresh personnel with a fresh orientation and not officers from the scrapped unit.

He said opportunities would be created for members of the public to participate in and make inputs to the formation of the new unit.

Adamu said this was the first time they have decisively taken to dissolve SARS and called for calm as they continue to resolve all the issues, adding that while carrying out formation of the new unit, corrections would be taken from the experience of SARS.

He urged protesters to give time in order to implement the orders and start fixing the issues.

In his words, “We just disbanded yesterday so protesters should calm down and give us time to fix the problem. The general public will be part of the process of getting a new outfit.

“I’m talking to you so I will keep talking to many others and get civil societies involved and get their input towards the new unit,” he said.

The IGP promised to investigate all cases of brutality and bring perpetrators to book.

He said the issue of compensation to the families of those affected by SARS’ would be addressed when investigations are concluded.

“We want justice to be done and justice will be done,” he said.

Davido urged every officer part of SARS be relieved of their duties and demanded the immediate release of all arrested protesters.

He also called for justice for the victims of SARS brutality and compensation for their families.
