A retired Police Commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda, founder of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, popularly known today as SARS, has brought solutions on how best the disbanded SARS could be used to achieve effective results, and keep their reputation intact.
Midenda who spoke to Newsmen, last year said: “SARS deviated from the original concept.”
On solutions he said: “The controversies engulfing SARS today will not disappear unless they return to the original concept. They should undergo re-orientation and thereafter, disappear from public view and remain faceless.
“They should avoid receiving direct complaints from members of the public as most cases received that way will eventually be civil issue but printed in armed robbery colour”.

However, Nigerians campaigned against the recent unconstitutional conduct of SARS operatives, protesting with a hashtag, ENDSARSNOW, ENDPOLICEBRUTALITYNOW, WEDONTNEEDSARSNOW, etc, demanding for the units disbandment.
The Inspector General of Police yielded to their demands and dissolved SARS, noting that all officers and men serving in the unit would be redeployed to other police commands, formations and units.
He promised to come up with a policing arrangement that would best tackle the offences of armed robbery and other violent crimes in the country.
