Force Spokesman: Why Police Will Not Disband SARS

Spokesman of the Nigeria police force, Jimoh Moshood, says the killing of seven officers in Abuja has insisted that the need for the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) will not be scrapped.

While speaking with reporters in Abuja on Tuesday, Moshood said efforts were in place to arrest those who killed the officers in the line of duty. He said the force would not leave any stone unturned in bringing the perpetrators to book.

“The killing of the policemen goes a long way to prove that the call for the disbandment of the SARS is not justified,” he said.
