IGP Bans FSARS, Other Police Tactical Squads From Routine Patrols | Victory to the Youths or Nay ?

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has banned the personnel of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and different Tactical Squads of the Force from embarking on habitual patrols.

This IGP’s ban became contained in a statement issued on Sunday via the Force, Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.

The assertion said the IGP “banned the personnel of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and other Tactical Squads of the Force which includes the Special Tactical Squad (STS), Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Anti-Cultism Squad and other Tactical Squads working on the Federal, Zonal and Command stages, from wearing out ordinary patrols and other conventional low-risk duties – forestall and search duties, checkpoints, mounting of roadblocks, site visitors assessments, and many others – with instantaneous impact.”

The officials have been warned in opposition to carrying out prevent and search duties, checkpoints, mounting of roadblocks, visitors tests, and many others with instant effect.

According to the Force spokesman, the IGP warned the Tactical Squads against the invasion of the privacy of citizens particularly.

This, he stated, blanketed the “indiscriminate and unauthorized search of cell phones, laptops and different smart devices,” adding that “they are to concentrate and respond most effective to instances of armed robbery, kidnapping and other violent crimes whilst the want arises.”

Mba stated the “directives come in opposition to the backdrop of findings through the management of the Force that a few personnel of the Tactical Squads disguise under those guises to perpetrate all forms of illegality, opposite to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), Code of Conduct and Rules of Engagement organising the squads.”

Following the alleged brutality through safety operatives in numerous elements of the country, many Nigerians took to the social media to specific their anger over the activities of guys of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigerian police, calling for the unit to be proscribed.

The outrage appeared to were precipitated by using a post from a Twitter user who stated he recorded SARS officials taking pictures “a young boy useless at Ughelli, Delta nation in the front ofp Wetland lodges. 

They left him useless on the roadside and drove away with the deceased Lexus jeep.”
