IGP vows to see FARS/SARS reforms through

  • Minister of Youth and Sports calls for regular town hall meetings with stakeholders on Police operations

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Mohammed Adamu, on Monday has reaffirmed his commitment to the ongoing reforms in the Nigeria Police Force especially as it concerns the activities of the Federal Anti-robbery Squad (FSARS) and other Special Tactical Units of the Force.

The IGP, speaking during a courtesy call on him by Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare at the Force Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja, called on the citizens to exercise patience as the reforms in FSARS and other areas of the Police are still in progress.

The Police boss noted that all the already announced measures aimed at checkmating a future occurrence of extra-judicial activities by some personnel of FSARS and other Tactical Units of the Force will be followed to the latter.

He reiterated that some of the officers who have been found to be unruly and unprofessional in their dealings with the citizens, particularly the youth, have been arrested and are already facing disciplinary actions.

In his remarks, the Minister of Youth and Sports commended the IGP for his prompt response in tackling the issues and called for stronger collaboration and mutual understanding between the Police and the youth.

Dare also called for regular town hall meetings at various State Commands which will involve the Police Spokespersons, Civil Society Organisations (CSO) and other critical stakeholders to strengthen the synergy between the police and the citizens, especially the youth.

The IGP, while concurring with the Hon. Minister on the necessity for Town Hall meetings, a practice which he identified as a feature of community policing, reaffirmed the readiness of the Police, under his watch, to work with relevant stakeholders towards enhancing respect for the rights of the citizens and better bonding between the Police and the community at all times.
