Nigerians from various walks of life have reacted to the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS by the Inspector General of Police
Recall that following the nationwide protest against police brutality, Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, on Sunday ordered all officers and men of the now defunct Special Anti-robbery Squad to be redeployed with immediate effect.
While reacting, some Nigerians asked where the SARS personnel will be moved to, others congratulated the youths for the victory.
Here are some comments Newspot curated from Twitter.
@ayosogunro, ”I am still angry but I will try to feel some elation: we have won something. We won it on paper, but it is still a win.”
”Next: #EndSARS must be won in reality. Please monitor your neighborhoods and streets and report/post any SARS personnel. SARS is now an illegal outfit.”
@iamnino_b, ”Before I will fall for this Congratulations, I need to understand what role these “Ex -SARS” officials will be playing when redeployed to other other police units.”
@mrmacaronii, ”Nigerian Youths, We have a voice! This is the beginning of a New Nigeria. SARS has been dissolved!!!

@Aminatsule_, ”Today I’m so proud to be Nigerian. The SARS protest today has demonstrated that injustices to Nigerians in Nigeria is a injustice to ALL Nigerians. Unity was our issue before, now we are unified we are unstoppable.”
