The acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), ALKALI USMAN says the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) created a vacuum which is challenging efforts by the Police to tackle insecurity in the country from a position of strength.
The acting IGP speaking at a presidential briefing organized by the Presidential Communications Team, said the aftermath of the EndSARS protest equally dampened the morale of the officers of the force.
The IGP also indicated that the police have recorded successes against secessionist groups and criminals in the southeast.
He noted that prosecution to ensure justice is served has remained a major challenge because of the ongoing strike by judiciary workers.
