Speaking to state house correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari today October 15, Governor Lalong said the disbanded police unit had been useful in the fight against insecurity in the region. According to him, SARS was not made up of bad elements alone as it also included personnel doing their work diligently.
Lalong opined that what was needed was the reformation of the unit to enable it to discharge its functions optimally.
