Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Kpotun Idris 700x394 640x360 - Stop going after ‘yahoo boys’ – IGP, Ibrahim Idris Warns SARS

Ibrahim Idris, the Inspector General of Police, has asked operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) to desist from running after internet fraudsters, Dailytrust reports.

He said they had the mandate of curbing armed robbery and kidnapping, warning that any officer caught arresting cybercrime suspects would be sanctioned appropriately.

Idris gave the warning yesterday at the FSARS headquarters at Magbo in Abeokuta, Ogun State. He was represented by the team leader of South West Monitoring Fact Finding Committee on SARS Reform, DCP Adepojulo Ilori.
