 IGP Sets Up New Unit, SWAT, To Replace SARS

The Public Relation Officer of the Nigerian Police Force, DCP Frank Mba, has revealed that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, has set up a new unit called the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS).

This is coming 48 hours after the IGP dissolved SARS following Nationwide protests.

In a statement released on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, DCP MBA noted that prospective members of the new team would undergo a psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment.

According to the statement, the medical examination will be carried out by a newly set-up Police Counselling and Support Unit (PCSU), a unit which the Force says will, henceforth, engage in psychological management, reorientation and training of the Officers of the Force deployed for tactical operations and other duties.
