    The head of #Nigeria’s police dissolved its Special Anti-Robbery Squad with immediate effect on Sunday, a police statement said, prompted by days of #protests across the country against alleged brutality by the controversial unit. The protests broke out after a video circulated last week allegedly showing members of the unit – known as #SARS – shooting dead a man in Delta state. It also prompted a globally-trending social media campaign to abolish the squad.
