Senate President, Ahmad Lawan on Sunday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari noted that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS has ended.
Lawan during the meeting stated that President Buhari ordered the dissolution of SARS and not the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu as widely believed.
He disclosed this while speaking with State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, after a meeting with Buhari on Sunday.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila was also in attendance.
Lawan said: “Since the issues raised by the protesters have been accepted by the government, the time has come for the protests to stop. Government needs to have time to implement the demands of the protesters, the protest has yielded the desired result. SARS was ended not by the IGP but President Buhari himself.”
“Buhari made a presidential statement and that would be the first time any president would say end SARS and SARS has ended.”
