Following the reports that went viral on social media that Nigerian Police Force may reconvene the defunct Special Anti – Robbery Squad (SARS) to duty, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has denied the rumors on Tuesday.


The Force accordong its Public Relation Officer, CP Frank Mba, categorially emphasize that there is no plan whatsoever to bring back the disbanded SARS.


“SARS is gone for good and will not resurrect under any guise whatsoever.”


The IGP notes that the Force has since reorganized its operational structure to fill the vacuum created by the disbandment of SARS.


Currently, the leadership of the Force is focused on efforts at deepening reforms within the Police and bequeathing Nigerans a Police Force that will be more effective, efficient, technology-driven, humane and Rule of Law-compliant.


The IGP therefore calls on members of the public to disregard the report which is absolutely false and deliberately intended to disinform and misinform members of the public.
