The Presidency has said that officers of the “now-defunct” Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), are to be “redeployed with immediate effect”.
This was communicated via the verified @NGRPresident handle on Sunday.
It also said a “new policing arrangement” will be made to address the policing gaps that might arise as a result of the dissolution of SARS.
It read: “PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE: The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force @PoliceNG has been dissolved WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
“The Inspector-General of Police will communicate further developments in this regard.
“All officers and men of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are to be redeployed with immediate effect.
