Nigeria's examiner general of police has prohibited a famous unit from doing stop and search obligations and setting up barriers in the midst of developing outrage at routine badgering and barbarities purportedly dedicated by its officials. Mohammed Adamu likewise said individuals from the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) should consistently wear outfits. Recordings shared as of late via web-based media seem to show officials blackmailing cash and in any event, shooting individuals.

Nigerians need SARS disbanded. The hashtag #EndSARS is moving on Twitter, set off by the supposed killing of a youngster by officials from the unit in the city of Lagos on Saturday. Numerous individuals are additionally utilizing the hashtag to share accounts of severity ascribed to the police unit. Lagos Governor Sanwo-Olu tweeted on Sunday: "Proper moves will be made, and expediently as well".

SARS and other tactical police units have been banned from "invasion of privacy of citizens particularly through the indiscriminate and unauthorised search of mobiles, laptops and smart devices," Mr Adamu said in a statement on Sunday. They should, he said, focus on cases of armed robberies, kidnapping and other violent crimes. He also said that police commissioners and commanders would be held liable for misconduct of officers in the areas they were in charge of. Three years ago Nigeria's police chief ordered an immediate re-organisation of the SARS after public outcry, but little, if any, changed according to an Amnesty International investigation published in June. The rights group accused SARS officers of using "torture and other ill-treatment to execute, punish and extract information from suspects". It documented 82 cases between January 2017 and May 2020. Amnesty found the group allegedly targeted men between the ages of 17 and 30. "Young men with dreadlocks, ripped jeans, tattoos, flashy cars or expensive gadgets are frequently targeted by SARS," the organisation said. "The Nigerian authorities must go beyond lip service and ensure there is real reform, " Osai Ojigho, director of Amnesty International Nigeria, said about the findings.
