The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) was disbanded by Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday, October 11, following protests across the country.

Legit.ng notes that there have also been some protests in the northern part of the country calling for improved security against attacks by bandits, killer herders and Boko Haram terrorists.

A coalition of the northern groups began protests across the 19 states in the region on Thursday, October 15, demanding more from the government on security and protection of lives and properties.

The forum said the overhaul must start with the removal of the service chiefs.

A coalition of 16 civil society organisations, however, condemned the call by the northern leaders and politicians for the removal of the country's service chiefs in the face of the current protests.
