4 “We are also aware that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), in a sheer display of professionalism and best regard for democratic tenets, yielded to the call and disbanded SARS.

5 “We are surprised that the protesters have continued with their trade which is uncalled for and unacceptable.

6 “The continued protest is ill-conceived. Even the initial protest was not in our best interest considering the advantage and usefulness of SARS in the curbing of crimes in Nigeria.

7 “The advantages overwhelmingly outweigh their few mistakes, so such protests could be highly demoralizing.”

8 He explained that the solidarity march from Unity fountain to force headquarters in Abuja was intended to boost the morale of personnel of the NPF.

9 On his part, Malam Kabiru Dallah, the Co-Convener of the CSOs, said that most well-meaning Nigerians appreciated the sacrifices of the Police in securing the country.

10 “Whoever sees the Police as an enemy is a suspect,” he declared. 

11 He, however, commended the Inspector General of Police for creating the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWATT), to replace the disbanded SARS.
