Korede Abiodun, a concerned Nigerian, has raised the alarm over the reemergence of operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
In October 2020, after #EndSARS protesters took to the streets to demand an end to police brutality, Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police, disbanded the squad.
Five months after the “supposed” ban, Abiodun said he saw operatives of F-SARS while on his way to work this morning, raiseing concerns over the status of the squad.
Korede made this revelation on Wednesday via Twitter.
SARS is currently operating on Lagos-Ibadan express way in between Alapere estate and 7up stay alert people.

“Two cars were parked. A Lexus and a Camry. I saw young men talking to men in uniforms with the inscription F-SARS,” Abiodun subsequently told FIJ.
“The men in uniforms were with guns. I did’t take a picture. It was dark and I was on speed. I counted at least four men with guns.
“The point where they were had a speed breaker. I frequent that route, I was surprised to see police. I thought I saw policemen until I noticed they were SARS. In my guess, they operated with the Camry because it had no number plates.”
