Inspector-General of Police Muhammed Adamu said the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and other tactical squads must stop such operations "with immediate effect". Adamu said the decision followed findings that "a few personnel" in undercover tactical squads have abused their position "to perpetrate all forms of illegality".

SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad) in Nigeria and the movement to end it.

From an organization called the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, it would be expected that those in power would be set out to protect the people. However, in Nigeria, people have been fighting to remove SARS. 

Groups were formed in the heat of 2020, including the Feminist Coalition, a group that organized specifically against SARS. Originated by Damilola Odufuwa and Odunayo Eweniyi to make the lives of women better in Nigeria.
