The Presidential Panel had, among other things, investigated allegations of human rights violations carried out by these officers and abuse of office against SARS and recommended reform or restructuring of the outfit .
The dismissal is among the demands by thousands of Nigerians marching across the streets of Lagos, Abuja, Oyo, Ekiti and other cities to demand an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, or SARS, a police unit accused of extrajudicial killings and abuses.
In an address on Monday, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari said SARS officers responsible for wrongful acts would be brought to justice. He said disbanding the unit was the first step to extensive police reforms to ensure the primary duty of police would be to protect lives and the livelihoods of people.
