IGP Orders All Disbanded SARS Officials To Report To Abuja For Psychological Examination

Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered all personnel of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to report to the force headquarters in Abuja for debriefing, psychological and medical examination.

This was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba.

While the time-frame for the medical evaluation has not been disclosed, the IGP says the officers are expected to undergo the process as a prelude to further training and reorientation before being redeployed into mainstream policing duties.

The medical examination will be carried out by a newly set-up Police Counselling and Support Unit (PCSU), a unit which the Force says will, henceforth, engage in psychological management, reorientation and training of the officers of the force deployed for tactical operations and other duties.

According to the statement, the IGP has also set up a new unit to replace the disbanded unit.

The formation of the new unit is coming 48 hours after the IGP dissolved SARS following nationwide protests.
