Its functions include investigation and prosecution of serious and complex criminal cases within and outside the country, Adegbenga said.
Adegbenga further reiterated that although there are some bad eggs among the SARS personnel but that does not call for the dismantled of the Squad that has reduced robbery to the barest minimum in the country.
