The Enugu State Governor, Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has on Monday, visited the defunct office of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force in Enugu to confirm that the facility has been closed in compliance with the Federal Government’s directives based on the demands of the protesting youth against SARS brutality in the country.

Gov. Ugwuanyi, according to the State Ministry of Information, was accompanied by the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Miletus Eze and his Information counterpart, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, and was received by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmad Abdurrahman, who took him round the facilities including the empty cells.

The Police Commissioner confirmed to the governor that the SARS unit has been closed accordingly and the eleven detained suspects evacuated from the cells, while discribing Governor Ugwuanyi  as “the most-friendly and security-disposed governor.”

The Enugu State Government while addressing the protesting youths in the State had promised to constitute a Judicial Panel of Inquiry to investigate and ensure the prosecution of offending SARS officers in the State.

The State Attorney General, Mr. Eze in his remarks  disclosed that the Judicial Panel of Inquiry constituted by Gov. Ugwuanyi to investigate complaints of police brutality or related extra judicial killings as demanded by the protesters, would  be inaugurated on Wednesday.
