The Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu on Sunday had a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

The meeting was focused on the controversial activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and issues of police reform.

Osinbajo revealed details of the meeting to State House correspondents.

The Vice-President said: “I had a meeting with the Inspector General of Police, we reviewed several of these issues. The President and I have had discussions, he is very concerned. He wants to see a reform. The IGP has issued a statement looking at these issues, in particular, the warning against the use of tactical units such as SARS for purposes of doing anything other than anti-robbery.”

“He specifically said that you cannot have a situation where SARS says, they are investigating cybercrime by arresting young men and women carrying their laptops and phones. Cybercrime is an electronic crime. I don’t see how you can investigate that by seizing people’s phones in a taxi or in their cars.”

“It is very obvious that this is a major concern, a few bad eggs in the police force are causing all of these problems because it is all over the place, in different states. There is a need to take serious action. The IG’s statement today, is a good first step. He has said clearly that police men must wear police uniforms.”

“You cannot say that because you belong to a tactical unit, you can dress in your casual clothing and be armed, because people can’t even tell the difference between robbers and the police, if you are not properly dressed in police uniform,” Osinbajo continued on the meeting with the IGP.
