But Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, told Vanguard that there is no plan to scrap the unit.
“Anybody calling for scrapping of SARS is an armed robber, let him come forward so that we can investigate him. Any complaints they give against any police personnel, everybody knows that we don’t hide it.
“We have a Public Complaints Bureau which handles complaints. So if anybody is calling for scrapping of SARS, we don’t need to be reminded that they are criminals just using the social media.”
