Governors of states in the Northern part of Nigeria have rejected the total disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong, disclosed this to journalists after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Thursday.
Simon Lalong, Plateau state governor and chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, told State House correspondents on Thursday that the police unit has been useful in the fight against insecurity in the region.
“SARS is not made up of bad elements alone as it also includes personnel who are doing their work diligently,” he said.
Lalong said what is needed is the reformation of the unit to enable it to discharge its functions “optimally”.
