The vice president, Yemi Osinbajo who is now the acting  President, on Tuesday, August 14, 2018, ordered the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to overhaul the management and activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The acting vice President spokesman, Laolu Akande made known in a statement.

The acting President, in a forum in June 2018, disclosed that President Buhari was concerned with the operations of SARS and had already ordered a review of the unit.

As expected, the directive has sparked a lot of reactions on social media.

Some Nigerians have hailed Osinbajo for the directive while some have asked the Acting President to forgive them for abusing him.

So far, the reactions on Twitter show that the Acting President’s order is a welcome development.

Some users even called on the President to remain in London permanently.

Does it mean that it’s only when @MBuhari is not around that we get to see real governance?
The difference between @ProfOsinbajo admin and @MBuhari admin is just too glaring.
Perhaps the old man should remain in London, let’s see how much we can save of this country.

Wouldn’t it be better to ask Buhari to remain as Nigeria permanent representative to UK?

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigerian police have constantly been accused of unlawful arrest, high-handedness, humiliation, detention and extortion by Nigerians.

This prompted the formation of a social advocacy movement known as End Special Anti-Robbery Squad (END SARS) on social media.
