Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday directed the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to, with immediate effect, overhaul the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).

Osinbajo also ordered Idris to ensure all operatives in the emerging unit conduct their operations in strict adherence to the rule of law.

The acting President stated this in a statement released by his media aide Laolu Akande.

Osinbajo’s directive came after months of street-and-social-media protests against the police unit which has, over the years, become synonymous with brutality and wanton arrest.
