IGP bans FSARS

This was disclosed by Frank Mba, police spokesman, in a statement on Sunday.

This comes after Nigerian celebrities on Twitter lent their voices to the #EndSARS campaign on Twitter.

They joined thousands of Nigerians online who are calling for the abolition of the police unit called SARS.

The unit has been accused of several human rights violations especially of young Nigerians who are seen carrying laptop computers.

The latest social media trend is as a result of a video that surfaced online on Saturday showing an innocent Nigerian shot dead by a police officer in Delta State.
