IGP Lists Requirements For SWAT Operatives As Training Begins Monday by Islie: 9:08pm On Oct 18
Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday, revealed the requirements for officers to be trained in the new police tactical team to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

He said the training of selected officers for the Special Weapons and Tactics team would commence on Monday, October 19, 2020.

The IGP noted that no ex-SARS operatives were shortlisted in the SWAT team.

Adamu also explained that “the officers selected for the training are young, smart and energetic officers who have acquired not less than seven (7) years working experience with clean service records – no pending disciplinary matters, no record of violation of rights of citizens or misuse of firearms – and are physically fit to withstand the rigour of SWAT Training and Operations.

“The selected officers shall be subjected to physical fitness test, medical and toxicology screening etc and those found to be unsuitable shall be discharged.”

This was contained in a statement on Sunday by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba. The statement was titled, ‘NPF New Tactical Team Commences Training Monday Oct 19’.

Adamu promised Nigerians that the SWAT team “will operate within very high professional and ethical standards, rule of law and dictates of best international policing practices.”

He also disclosed that to ensure adequate training and screening of SWAT operatives, the Nigeria Police Force has partnered the International Committee of the Red Cross and other development partners for the training which begins tomorrow at the Police Mobile Force Training School, Ila Oragun, Osun State and the PMF Training School, Ende Hills, Nasarawa State.

He said the ICRC “will handle topics touching on humanitarian laws, police conduct in conflict situation, human rights standard especially in the use of force and firearms, arrest and detention amongst others.

“Other areas of the training program will include modern-day police ethics and values, intelligence-led policing, operation planning/tactical decision-making processes, hostage rescue tactics and operation, weapon handling, first aid/basic life-saving skills, stress/fear management, police-citizens relations and emotional intelligence etc.

“The training modules will be handled by other carefully selected development partners, security experts as well as veterans from the civil society and human rights community.”

The IGP sought the cooperation of Nigerians “in the ongoing development drive for a new and reformed Nigeria Police Force” while “he enjoined them to be patient and to believe in the reform processes which are all directed at ensuring the security, safety and rights of all.”

For about two weeks now, the #EndSARS protests have been taking place across major cities in the country with youths calling for the reform of the police force.

Major highways across the country have been blocked thereby grounding economic activities.

The youths have been resolute and firm in their stand that they would not leave the streets until the much-needed reforms were actualised.

Nonsense and SWAT.

God punish all the useless politicians who have misgoverned this country, may their children with their foreign degrees share in the judgement of God on their useless parents.

May God bring every killer cop to reckoning. May the blood of every slain innocent Nigerian haunt them and their generations day and night forever.

May every hand past and present that has ever plundered the nation's treasury become leprous and may every thing they touch henceforth turn to dust.

Government of the more you look the less you see. These old, evil men are the reason this country is where it is today, and yet, na them like respect pass anything for this life. Let me make it clear in case it isn't already clear:

NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SARS AND SWAT!

Just like there is no difference between end, dissolve, resolve, rebrand, break up, disperse, demobilize, etc. So when I see people say shìt like, "But Government has already ended SARS, you people should stop protesting", I get very upset. People in this category are nothing but SHEEP. That's right - SHEEP! ZOMBÌE!!

We need to stay woke!

#SoroSoke don't #OffTheMic

#EndSARS
#ENDBADGOVERNANCEINNIGERIA

XOXO

Wayward Pikin.

They should focus on making the economy better and there will become less need for a SWAT kind of police.

One thing for sure Nigeria will always be like Nollywood and Development countries will always be like Hollywood, what I'm trying to say is that Nigerian Military can never be skillful like that's of other developed countries they are very foolish in action that's why they always kill innocent civilians in protest because they don't have skills and in hostile case they'll shoot the victim instead of the kidnappers. angry

What is going on in Nigeria which just started with small groups protesting against what they termed #EndSars
#EndPoliceBrutality.
But with the way Nigerians have greeted the protest whether actively or passively has shown that Nigerians are truly tired and fade up with the government of the day.

I can only see this gradually turning to a revolution that will displace this government.

A protest is easier to stop because it has a face and once that person is arrested everything dies down what is going on in Nigeria now is faceless if you arrest 1000 people thousands more will join and at that stage the pressure will be for the government of the day to resign.

If the sole purpose for the protest was for #EndSars I will say the message has been passed you need to see what happened in Abuja airport road on Friday it was really massive and unprecedented and from feeders I got they said that was just a tips of the iceberg.

Not a bad idea. As the IGP is doing this, he should also be working on justice for the families who lost their loved ones through police brutality. Weldone sir!
