Nigeria’s police chief has announced the dissolution of a notorious anti-robbery unit following days of widespread protests against police brutality. The Special Anti-Robbery Squad is accused of torture, murder and unlawful arrests. The police chief announced a new outfit to tackle violent crimes will soon be set up and that civil society will now work with the police to identify and punish officers who committed abuses.
