Unfortunately, the said group diverted from their real purpose of creation to the killing of innocent youths whom they ‘suspect’ to be cyber fraudsters (Yahoo boys).
Few days ago, the angry Nigerian youths among well celebrated celebrities in Nigeria took to the street to protest against the incessant killings of youths by members of the SARS unit.
The youths also picked on the police PRO Mr Frank Mba who posited that the protest is only spearheaded by ‘criminal enterprises’.
Responding to the doggedness of the Nigerian citizens, the IGP instructed the dissolution of the SARS unit with immediate effect.
He has also promised that the force will come up with other means of fighting armed robbery in the country. And this will be related to the public when such is achieved.
The IGP also said that those in the unit will be redeployed to different commands in the state since it won’t be advisable to relieve them of their jobs just like that.
