The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has applied to withdraw its lawsuit filed to stop judicial panels probing allegations of brutality by its officials particularly operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.

The suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/1492/2020 was filed on November 9, 2020, by the NPF, through its lawyer, O. M. Atoyebi (SAN), asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to stop the judicial proceedings.
