IGP Announces SWAT To Replace Scrapped SARS by sharpden: 6:29pm On Oct 13

Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) has announced the formation of a new unit in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The new unit of the force named, Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) replaces the scrapped Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) dissolved on Sunday.

This was made known in a statement by police spokesman, Frank Mba, in a Tuesday statement wherein officers of the abolished police unit were asked to report at the force headquarters for screening.

“The Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A. Adamu, NPM, mni has, today, 13th October, 2020, in accordance with Section 18 (10) of the Police Act 2020, ordered all personnel of the defunct SARS to report at the Force Headquarters, Abuja for debriefing, psychological and medical examination,” Mba wrote.

“The officers are expected to undergo this process as a prelude to further training and reorientation before being redeployed into mainstream policing duties.

“The medical examination will be carried out by the newly set-up Police Counselling and Support Unit (PCSU), a Unit, which henceforth shall engage in psychological management, re-orientation and training of officers of the Force deployed for tactical operations and other duties.

“The Unit, which is domiciled with the Force Medical Department and coordinated by the Force Medical Officer, has its membership drawn from amongst psychiatrists, psychologists, medics, pastors and imams, Public Relations practitioners, Civil Society and other Human Rights groups with relevant qualifications and expertise.

“Meanwhile, the IGP has set up a new Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team that will fill the gaps arising from the dissolution of the defunct SARS. Prospective members of this new team will also undergo psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment.

“They are to commence training at the different Police tactical training institutions nationwide, next week. While personnel from the Police Commands in the South-East and the South-South will be trained at the Counter-Terrorism College, Nonwa-Tai, Rivers State, those from the Police Commands from the North and the South-West will be trained at the Police Mobile Force Training College, Ende, Nasarawa State and the Police Mobile Force Training College, Ila-Orangun, Osun State, respectively,” the statement read.

Same old wine in a new bottle.

We still say no. A total end of this special unit is what we demand because it is being created to be abused by people in power who will be using it to fulfill their evil desires. This new unit will still be turned to an outfit to oppress the innocent masses because Nigeria has no leaders to save the masses.

#ENDSWAT

The protest should be intensified.

The speed of accepting d scrapping of SARS and d accepting of d five points demand makes any intelligent Nigerian to understand that there is more to it. This is time for harder protest until we understand d truth about SWAT so we don't end up selling our dog and buying a monkey (Igbo proverb)

Same thing. People should be reasonable enough to know that these people see us as fools.

This is a grand plan to continue the terrorism by the police on innocent citizens while the bandits and criminals are left to thrive.

It's just a vicious cycle of terror and killing of innocent citizens. My people think! SWAT changes nothing.

There is no way they will not create another outfit in order to fill the vacuum created by the disbandment of SARS

Whether the new unit members will hear word or not is the issue.
