The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP, Mohammed Adamu, has decentralised the operation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, initially centralised by his predecessor, former IGP, Ibrahim Idris.
The Ag. IGP explained that, while plans are being perfected to strengthen the operations and address complaints over the operations of the Unit, the Unit is now under State Commands.
He also disbanded all quasi-investigation and operations out-fits, including the Special Investigation Panel, SIP, and Special Tactical Squad, STS, and other such teams.
He also set up a Special Election Investigation Team, SEIT, tasked with the exclusive function of investigating and prosecuting electoral offenders.
