#EndSARS: Northern governors oppose disbandment of SARS

Governors of the 19 northern states have rejected the disbandment of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

Simon Lalong, Plateau state governor and chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, told State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Thursday that the police unit has been useful in the fight against insecurity in the region.

“SARS is not made up of bad elements alone as it also includes personnel who are  doing their work diligently,” he said.

Lalong said what is needed is the reformation of the unit to enable it discharge its functions “optimally”.
