The training of a new police unit to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad will commence next week says Nigeria’s Police, PUNCH NEWS reports.
The Inspector-General General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, says promised to investigate all cases of brutality by SARS operatives and bring the perpetrators to book.
“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.”
He said the issue of compensation to the families of those wronged by SARS would be addressed when investigations were concluded.
“We want justice to be done and justice will be done,” he said. He said officers of the disbanded unit would be retrained and given other responsibilities in the Force, but would not be reabsorbed into the new outfit. “We admit the trust gap is wide but we will work to bridge that gap,” Adamu assured.
