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

And they yet to investigate & identify those who were involved in criminal acts in their ranks. Still same of d same

WorkTheTalk:
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.”

It's like this people lack sense. Shouldn't this be the last item on their list? Or they simply interested in protests going violent?

protests:
Who are they?
Where are they from?
What are their qualifications?
If they aren't university graduates, they would still goof.
Hope they will declare assets before getting in there?
remember we do have cultists as graduates as well. na God hands we dey. we have coppers that are addict cultists. qualification is good but I choose psychological fitness.

They said you are bad, you swiftly ran home only to come back and said you have changed your name and clothes. Is the same blood not flowing in you? How has coin of name changed police brutality?

That’s another aspect which will only embolden these ones to carry out their own abuse or worse.
