IGP orders SARS to wear Police Uniforms with Full ID
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris, has issued instruction to all members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to always wear police uniforms with full identification, in the mean time before the launch of new FSARS uniform.
This was made known by the force Spokesman, Ag. Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Jimoh Moshood, in a statement in Abuja on Friday, when he noted that, Idris gave the order at a meeting with critical stakeholders.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Idris was represented by the Deputy Inspector-General of police in Charge of Operations, Mr Habila Joshak.
He said that the meeting was convened to brief the stakeholders on the progress made so far in the overhaul of the SARS now known as Federal SARS.
The Police boss said that the overhaul of SARS was beyond rhetoric as strategic reforms were being implemented.
He said that the FSARS operatives had been ordered to desist from attending to civil or commercial matters henceforth and focus strictly on armed robbery and kidnapping cases only.
According to Moshood, the Commissioner of Police in charge of FSARS, Mr Habiru Gwandu, informed the meeting that a human rights desk had been created in the 36 states of the federation and FCT.
Gwandu noted that the Police had engaged the services of psychologists and counsellors in the ongoing screening of FSARS operatives.

On his part, the DCP in charge of the I-G’s X-Squad, Amaechi Elumelu, said in the statement that the screening and mobilization of FSARS Operatives would not be business as usual again.

He said that FSARS operatives would undergo rigorous orientation including human rights training among other screening processes.
Elumelu said that the I-G would soon unveil the Custody Records Management System.
