Training of new police unit will kick off next week – IGP Adamu


Mohammed Adamu the Inspector General of Police, has announced that the training of a new police unit which will be replacing the disbanded Special Anti -Robbery Squad (SARS) will kick off next week.

The IGP made this known when Davido visited him in office on Monday October 12 over the ongoing #ENDSARS protests, saying that there is need to get a new structure to carry out the duties of the defunct police unit. 

Adamu promised to investigate all cases of brutality and bring perpetrators to book, while also revealing that the new unit will be intelligence -driven, properly trained and only act on special occasions that require their attention.

Read what he said below;

“We just disbanded yesterday so protesters should calm down and give us time to fix the problem. The general public will be part of the process of getting a new outfit.

“I’m talking to you so I will keep talking to many others and get civil societies involved and get their input towards the new unit.”

On the issue of compensating families of those affected by SARS brutality, the IGP said it would be addressed when investigations are concluded.

Adamu further revealed that though the officers of the disbanded SARS would be retrained and given other responsibilities in the Force, they will not be reabsorbed into the new unit.


  1. There is no need for any other unit to replace SARS because they will still go on extreme. Every Police Man or Woman should wear the well known Police uniform and carryout their normal routine without any special name is there any difference in police duty of arrest, detain, investigate and prosecute.
