Police To Raise 1,850 Operatives For SWAT by WorkTheTalk(m): 9:56am On Oct 17
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is to kick start the recently created Special Weapons and Tactics Teams (SWAT) Unit with 1,850 operatives in the states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory FCT Abuja any time from now, a credible source at the Force Headquarters, revealed this to Tribune Online.

The source said that already, Commissioners of Police in the 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT) Command have been directed to submit 50 names of personnel per state for the scheme.

The source further revealed that the CPs were strictly advised that no former member of the defunct SARS should be included on the list and that “the nominees should not have any pending or decided disciplinary case (s) and must be of impeccable character.”

A letter with reference number CB:4770/YBS/ SHQ /SUB.1/89 dated 14 October, 2020 and signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin) in Yobe State directed Police Area Commanders, Divisional Police officers and Officers in-charge to release the affected officers serving in their formations.

The letter titled: “Training of Nigeria Police Special Weapons and Tactics Teams (SWAT) to replace the disbanded Special AntiRobbery Squad (SARS),” says: “The Commissioner of Police warn and release the affected officers serving in your formations/Divisions to report at SHQ Damaturu on Friday 16 October, 2020 by 0800hrs prompt for CP’s briefing.”

On the document were 50 names of police officers made up of two Chief Superintendents of Police (CSPs), two Superintendents of Police, four Deputy Superintendents of Police (DS P), five Assistant Superintendents of Police (ASP), three Inspectors, 30 sergeants and four corporals.

The source said that all necessary arrangements had been concluded to ensure the immediate take-off of the training and formal launching of the new Security outfit by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar Adamu Though efforts to get the reaction of the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Frank Mba, a Deputy Commissioner of Police DCP, over the development proved abortive, however another Senior Police Officer at the Force Headquarters in Abuja confirmed the story.

According to him, “yes, we are commencing the training of SWAT Operatives anytime from now, each State Police Command and the FCT has been mandated to submit 50 names for the take-off of the pilot scheme, we are good to go now.”

They don't posses the facilities to train SWAT to international standards. I don't know why they name this new squad SWAT. Cause Nigeria have not train a soldier to use bigger military gadget Na SWAT dey want train.. Yeye dey smell. undecided

So Muhammed Adamu is still adamant about this SWAT idea of his. We don't want any Special Weapons and Tactics" team. this does not reform those who would be in the unit, it's still the same bad eggs. Whereas, which special weapons do they have? Is it not the same AK's that was used in world war II they are still carrying about. Those weapons should now be relics and be kept in an armoury museum. You'd see some weapons in the hand of some police officers and would wonder if the paper-tape holding the magazine to the barrel is part of the gun.

Is There SWAT in the North , IF THEY don't have the SWAT in the North, We don't need it in the south, these are oppressive apparatus to subjugate the rest of the South, They are the one always creating SARS for us and creating SWAT and they oppose regional Police, Yet they have the Hisbah in the North imposing Sharia Law in a secular state and the President allows that to thrive. They are too eager to create SWAT for us in the south but they overlook the Northerner while killing us in the South. They prevented Amotekun, Disband Biafra, allowed Hisbah and Post Swat to kill and go

Here are the issues... It’s not about name bt personnel training, orientation and engagement with citizens/society. Respect to human and civil rights while carrying out their duties.

As it stands and with how quickly this was done the Public/Youths/Masses believes SWAT is SARS reincarnation. undecided
