‘Report Any Officer Claiming To Be SARS Operative’ – Police Commissioner Warns

The Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, Garba Umar has asked the people of the state to report any police officer claiming to be a member of the Federal SARS in the state.

The appeal is coming on the heels of the recent disbandment of the Federal SARS, Special Investigation Panel and Special Tactical Squad by the Acting Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu.


Addressing newsmen on Tuesday at the police headquarters in Amawbia, Umar said there was no FSARS in the state, warning that anybody impersonating an officer was doing so at his peril.

“In tandem with the directive of the new IGP, there is no Federal SARS anymore in Anambra State. But we have what we call the Anti-Robbery Squad which is under my command and control.

“We appeal to the public, anyone that sees FSARS or someone claiming to be an officer of FSARS should please report him immediately to the CP for necessary actions.

He assured that the state SARS was being recognized for better and improved performance.

“Already, we’ve given directives, and we’ve started readjusting and re-organising our SARS for better services,” he stressed.
