“@YomiShogunle I can’t wait to se your usual tweet mocking this #endsars statement. It’s your usual way, so let’s see it”, he ended the tweet with a smile emoji.
Earlier in the day, the Acting President, VP Yemi Osinbajo directed the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to, with immediate effect, shut down the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).
The order follows persistent complaints and reports on the activities of SARS that border on allegations of human rights violations, which is after many months of online and street outcry of the #ENDSARS campaign.
In a statement signed on Tuesday by Osinbajo’s media aide, Laolu Akande, the IGP has been instructed to ensure that any Unit that will emerge from the process, will be intelligence-driven, restricted to the prevention and detection of armed robbery, kidnapping, apprehension of offenders linked to the stated offences, and nothing more.
