”Check People’s Bank Account Balances And Get Dismissed” – IGP Warns FSARS

SHARE

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris has ordered operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) to cease from checking people’s bank account.

The IGP was at a workshop in Owerri when he made this order in the interest of citizens right to be respected.

The IGP also ordered FSARS operatives to desist from checking people’s phones and laptops, unless there was a court order or an instruction from the commissioner of police.

He said, “Under the new era in F-SARS, operatives must be professional and respect the rights and privileges of all citizens. In the past, F-SARS was considered as the most elitist and professional unit of the police force.

“In the last few years, the unit has been riddled with allegations of abuse and excesses which made the public to call for its disbandment.

“Under the reformed F-SARS, it is illegal to search suspects’ phones, computers, or inquire about their bank account details without proper authorisation.

“Henceforth, F-SARS commanders must get directives from the state Commissioners of Police before invading people’s privacy. Any officer who disobeys will be dismissed.”

Ibrahim Idris also said all operatives would undergo medical evaluation in order to guarantee their mental, psychological and emotional condition.
