Following the alleged murder of Tiamiyu Kazeem, the vice captain of Remo Stars by a police officer, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered the disbandment of satellite offices of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) across the country.
This was announced on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, by Peter Ogunyonwo, Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Criminal Investigations Department.
Ogunyonwo announced the disbandment during his courtesy visit to the late Tiamiyu’s family in Sagamu area of Ogun State.
He said, “It is those (SARS) satellite offices that IG has ordered that should be disbanded immediately.”
“For example, there’s one in Ikorodu. From what we heard, there’s another one in Ijebu-Ode; there’s another one in Obada Oko from where officers came to cause this mayhem. So, all have been disbanded with immediate effect and the CPs have been ordered to take over such offices.”
