Disbandment of SARS created a vacuum in policing – IGP


Alkali Baba, acting inspector-general of police, says the disbandment of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) created a vacuum in policing the country.

Baba said this at a media briefing on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the morale of police officers in the country has been low since the #EndSARS protests in October 2020.

The acting inspector-general of police said the special weapons and tactics squad (SWAT) established to replace SARS has not yet commenced operations.

He said the vacuum created by SARS has made it difficult to tackle most of the violent crimes in the country.

“The security situation of the country has been significantly stabilise from time to time but we think if it is stabilising then are isolated insurgency coming from these zones in terms of attacks on police facilities and police personnel, even all law enforcement agencies including the military,” he said.

“Therefore, we decided to, one, rejig the morale of our personnel, which has been a little bit dampened since the #EndSARS thing went.

“With the proscription of SARS and establishment of SWAT, which has not been able to take off fully. We had a vacuum in tackling most of the violent crimes from our position of strength.”
