Northern Governors Forum says Northern states were not against the scrapped Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit of the Nigeria Police Force.
Chairman Northern Governors Forum and Plateau State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong said the unit had been useful in the fight against insecurity in the Northern region.
The Governor stated this on Thursday during an interview with State House correspondents after a meeting he had with the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said although President Buhari had already approved the scrapping of the police unit, northern states do not believe in throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
He added that that the unit needed reforms not a total scrap.
