He went on to assure the public that all cases of police brutality will be carefully investigated to bring those guilty to book. He also promised that an intelligence-driven and properly trained unit that will only act on special occasions that require their attention will replace the defunct SARS.

He said;

“We just disbanded yesterday so protesters should calm down and give us time to fix the problem. The general public will be part of the process of getting a new outfit.

“I’m talking to you so I will keep talking to many others and get civil societies involved and get their input towards the new unit.”

On the issue of compensating families of those affected by SARS brutality, the IGP said it would be addressed when investigations are concluded.

Adamu also added that after investigations are done, the matters relating to those families affected by SARS brutality will be addressed. However, officers who were part of the now-defunct SARS would be retrained, assigned other duties in the police force but will not in any way be reabsorbed into the new unit.
