The directive was disclosed Monday during his inaugural conference with Commissioners of Police and other senior officers in Abuja.
By this disbandment, FSARS will now be under the direct supervision of the commissioners of police in 36 states of the federation.
His directive to dissolve the FSARS is arguably connected to the highhandedness that characterized the operations of its operatives for a long time.
One of such is the killing of an officer of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Rotimi Adeyemi by a FSARS officer identified as Olukunle Olonade at Iyana-Ipaja axis, Wednesday, November 30, ’18 .
Adeyemi had reportedly stopped the FSARS officer during a routine stop and search operation during which the Olonade drew his weapon and gunned down the LASTMA officer who died immediately.
Adeyemi was soon lynched by angry residents. He died the following day.
