Stop Going After Yahoo Boys, Fight Armed Robbery & Kidnapping - IG Warns F-SARS

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has asked operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) to desist from running after internet fraudsters otherwise known as ‘yahoo boys’. He said they had the mandate of curbing armed robbery and kidnapping, warning that any officer caught arresting cybercrime suspects would be sanctioned.

IGP Idris gave the warning yesterday at the FSARS headquarters at Magbo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.


The IG was represented by the team leader of South West Monitoring Fact Finding Committee on SARS Reform, DCP Adepojulo Ilori.

He assured the people of what he called “positively transformed” operatives of FSARS.

He said the committee had embarked on the inspection of SARS detention facilities across the southwest states.

Part of the committee’s mandate was to decongest the detention facilities and submit a comprehensive report to the IGP.

The committee reviewed the case files of all the suspects in detention and promised to transfer all civil cases to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation to decongest the detention.

He said, “For now, SARS will be operating in our normal uniform until after we might have completed our fact finding mission even the presidency will still have inputs.”
