Borno State Governor, Professor Bababgana Zulum has asked police authority to send officers attached to the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad to the state to participate in the fight against Boko Haram insurgents.
Zulum made the call when a delegation led by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Argebesola met him at Government House, Maiduguri.
Zulum said officers attached to the defunct unit had played a role in countering insurgency operations by using their energy and aggression against Boko Haram terrorists.
He said, “We are not in support of brutality by any security outfit, but to be sincere, here in Borno State the efforts of SARS operatives in the counter insurgency operations need not to be overemphasized.
“They are doing a wonderful job in containing the security situation in Borno State. They have greatly supplemented the efforts of the Nigerian Military.” Zulum said.
