Federal Government Disband SARs

Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu Adamu   has announced the immediate abolition of the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.

Naija News Understands that the police boss made the announcement during a live television program on TVC Nigeria.

According to an exclusive post, it was gathered from a top police and Presidency sources that the announcement was initially scheduled to be made on Friday after Mr. Adamu met with President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House, but was thwarted after presidential spokesman Femi Adesina said the administration should not surrender to Twitter warriors.

Mr. Adesina then proceeded to issue the highly-criticised statement that appeared to cast the president as insensitive to the #EndSARS campaign, which has gained worldwide backing over the past week.

Mr. Adamu has now finally been asked to “announce this afternoon as things are getting out of hand,” the Gazette learnt.

Mr. Adamu was also initially scheduled to meet with top civil society players in Abuja on Friday to make the announcement, which was preempted by Mr. Adesina’s interjection.

A top police source told the Gazette that President Buhari was finally convinced that the protest should not go into a new week because it is a decentralised movement with millions of young people with little experience in public agitation.

On Saturday, Jimoh Isiaq was killed in Ogbomoso after police officers opened fire on protesters. Many others were injured and remained in critical conditions as of Sunday morning.
