''Check people’s bank account balances and get dismissed'' - IGP warns FSARS





Looks like the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris is finally taking a bold stand against men of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad, FSARS. 

In a new statement released through his representative at a workshop in Owerri, Idris warned FSARS to desist from checking the bank accounts details of anyone they interact with while discharging their duties.
He also ordered the operatives to desist from checking people’s phones and laptops unless they have a court order or an instruction from the commissioner of police in charge of a state police command.

Idris who was represented at the event by the Amaechi Elumele the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the IGP’s X-Squad, also added that F-SARS operative who handles cases not related to armed robbery and kidnapping would equally be dismissed from the Force. '


'Under the reformed F-SARS, it is illegal to search suspects phones, computers, or inquire about their bank account details without proper authorization. Henceforth, the F-SARS Commanders must get directives from the State Commissioners before invading people’s privacies. Any officer who disobeys will be dismissed.” he said
