Nigerians Seek To #EndSARS As IGP Adamu Decentralises FSARS
Nigerians have sought to #EndSARS in reaction to the directive by the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to decentralise the operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Naija News had reported earlier that the IGP decentralised SARS operations earlier centralised by his predecessor, Ibrahim Idris.
Adamu also disbanded the Special Investigation Panel (SIP) and Special Tactical Squad (STS) with immediate effect.
This online news platform understands that the new directive means FSARS will now be domiciled under the direct supervision of the Commissioners of Police in the 36 states of the Federation.
Apparently displeased with the development, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to express their grievances with the new IG’s action.
Naija News captured some of the reactions below…
So SARS is now back to being SARS, not FSARS anymore. SARS is no longer under the IG’s office, the commissioners of police now control them. Basically back to what it was before the #EndSARS campaign. One step forward, 2 steps backward. Nigeria.

BAD NEWS: The report of the disbandment of FSARS by the new IG of @PoliceNG is not a good development, what this means is that SARS has now been drafted back to take orders from State Police Commissioners. They have taken us back to were we started from.#EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG

Today in Mile 2, an 'officer' without uniform stopped me when I was in my NYSC UNIFORM and asked me to open my bag. My first question to him was "show me your identity". He told me that was it possible for him to stop me without being a policeman, I said yes.#EndSARS. @segalink.

So now I have to walk in fear again, I can't keep any hairstyle I want, I can't take my laptops and gadgets out of the house, leaving my receipts at home, now I can't travel in peace from state to state, without people accusing me wrongly. This new IG is a useless cunt #EndSARS
