The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris, has asked operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) to stop going after internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘yahoo boys’.
He said their area of operation covered armed robbery and kidnapping and warned that any officer caught arresting cyber-crime suspects would be sanctioned appropriately.
Daily Trust reports that Idris spoke on Tuesday at the FSARS headquarters at Magbo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The IGP was represented by the team leader of South West Monitoring Fact-Finding Committee on SARS Reform, DCP Adepojulo Ilori.
He said the committee had embarked on the inspection of SARS detention facilities across the southwest states.
The committee reviewed the case files of all the suspects in detention and promised to transfer all civil cases to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation to de-congest the detention facility.
Ilori said: “We are visiting all the FSARS facilities in all the commands in the Southwest states and ensure that the IGP’s directives are strictly complied with. To achieve this, we are soliciting the usual unflinching support of the media, the civil liberty organization, human rights organizations and the entire members of the public to promptly report their observation to the CP of the state concerned because we cannot achieve this without your cooperation.
“We are very sure as from now that you are going to see a positively transformed FSARS operative that will now function as per their specific role of nipping robbery, armed robbery and kidnapping activities in the bud. This why we are here.
“For now, SARS will be operating in our normal uniform until after we might have completed our fact-finding mission even the presidency will still have inputs.”
