The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) was dissolved just few days ago and in not less than 75-hours, a new group (SWAT) was set up by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
In a bid to show Nigerians of the new police reform, the IGP stated that, the issue of police looking at people’s phones, checking the kind of vehicles they use or profiling them to see whether they are yahoo boys or no is over. This will come as a good news and a step at the right direction as Nigerians seeks for change.
“The issue of any police unit at all going to look at people’s telephone, which is supposed to be their private property or looking at the kind of vehicles they are using or checking if they are yahoo boys or not, that era is gone. It is not acceptable neither is it what they have been taught to do in terms of training.” IGP, Adamu stated.
