The Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr Ibrahim Idris, has ordered members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to wear police uniforms with full identification, pending the launch of new FSARS uniform.

The force Spokesman, Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Jimoh Moshood,

in a statement in Abuja on Friday said that Idris gave the order at a meeting

with critical stakeholders.

NAN reports that Moshood said 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.

The Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr Ibrahim Idris

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.

He said that the desks would address cases of infractions against

members of the public by FSARS personnel across the nation.

Gwandu added 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.

He explained that this system would contain the records of arrests,

detentions and welfare details of suspects.

The commissioner said that this system would discourage arbitrary

arrest of people and ensure that suspects were charged to court

within 24 hours, in compliance with the law.
