Nigeria’s police affairs minister says that there will be an investigation into alleged infractions by a notorious unit in the police force that has been accused of atrocities against innocent civilians and routine harassment.

On Sunday, Nigeria’s inspector general of police Mohammed Adamu banned the Special Anti Robbery Squad (Sars) from carrying out stop and search duties and setting up roadblocks.

The hashtag #EndSARS had been trending on Twitter, triggered by the alleged killing of a young man by officers from the unit in the city of Lagos on Saturday.

But there have been investigations in the past, the results of which have not been released, the BBC’s Nduka Orjinmo reports from the capital, Abuja.

People want that information rather than more investigations, he added.
