On October 11, 2020, the then inspector-general of police, IGP Mohammed Adamu disbanded the unit after days of persistent protests by youths nationwide against the activities of SARS,

APC, PDP in hot exchanges over 2023 presidency
APC, PDP in hot exchanges over 2023 presidency
The All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday, slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for condemning the Senate’s amendment of the Electoral Bill on Tuesday to allow political parties hold only direct primaries.
According to the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, PDP is only pretending to be an opposition political party.
The senate had reconsidered its decision on some clauses in the Electoral Amendment Bill that were passed in July.The Senate amended clause 87 of the bill to mandate political parties to hold only direct primaries for candidates seeking elective positions, which the PDP was opposed to. It also amended the clause to let the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) determine the use of electronic voting and transfer of election results.
Akpanudoedehe while affirming the APC’s support for the Senate’s amendments, said the party would support constitutionally-permitted innovations that would improve transparency and credibility of the country’s electioneering processes and internal democracy.
“Accordingly, the sound bites from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be ignored in its entirety. PDP is only pretending to be an opposition political party. Meanwhile, the patriotic disposition of the multi-partisan 9th National Assembly should be commended. It is the right thing for the National Assembly to aggregate and consider the clamour by civil societies, interested stakeholders and indeed all Nigerians on all matters requiring legislation,” he said.….
