…Says Trending News To The Contrary Absolutely False
The Nigerian Police Force says its attention has been drawn to a false news making the rounds online and offline suggesting that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc (+), NPM, fdc has ordered the re-establishment of the defunct Special Anti – Robbery Squad (SARS).
The Force in a statement by CP Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, emphasize that there is no plan whatsoever to bring back the disbanded SARS, adding that SARS is gone for good and will not resurrect under any guise.
The IGP noted that the Force had since reorganized its operational structure to fill the vacuum created by the disbandment of SARS.
He affirmed that the leadership of the Force is focused on efforts at deepening reforms within the Police and bequeathing Nigerians a Police Force that will be more effective, efficient, technology-driven, humane and Rule of Law-compliant.
The IGP therefore called on members of the public to disregard the report which is absolutely false and deliberately intended to misinform and misinform members of the public.
