Breaking: Police penciled 37 ex-SARS officers for dismissal
No fewer than 37 former members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad have been pencilled down for dismissal from service. The Police Service Commission is also expected to order the prosecution of 24 other ex-SARS operatives for various acts of professional misconduct. These were the highlights of the Report of the Presidential Panel on Reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad set up by the Federal Government in 2018 to reform the dreaded unit. The presidential panel had, among other things, investigated allegations of human rights violations and abuse of office against SARS and recommended reform or restructuring of the outfit.
