1st News had reported the disbandment of the SARS unit after nationwide #EndSARS protests against brutality.
Barely two days after the deletion of the police squad; another mass protest in support of its activities took place nationwide on Tuesday.
Zulum made the call when a delegation led by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola met him at Government House, Maiduguri.
Zulum said officers attached to the defunct unit had played a role in counterinsurgency 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 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.”
