The names of the 37 officers were penciled down for dismissal following Nigerian youths' protests against the activities of the recently-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

The youths have also been calling on the federal government to reform the force.

But in a series of tweets on Saturday, October 17, 2020, Ayo Akanji, a member of President Muhammadu Buhari’s media team released the names and service numbers of the dismissed officers on Twitter.

In another tweet, Akanji said the police administrative action includes dismissal, reprimand and demotion.

He, however, said Dolapo and Shogunle are among the group of officers that were demoted and not dismissed.

Recall that the PSC had on Friday said 37 ex-SARS officers would be dismissed while 24 would be prosecuted for various acts of professional misconducts.
