Hundreds of young Anti SARS protesters on Sunday stormed the Nigeria House in New York demanding transparency in the disbandment of the police unit back home.
The protesters said operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad found wanting should be sacked and not redeployed.
The protest started shortly after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, announced the dissolution of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad.
Adamu also announced plans for a new arrangement to address anticipated policing gaps following the disbandment, and the constitution of an investigative team to investigate the alleged cases of rights violations, among others.
