Nigeria’s head of police Mohammad Adamu has established a new Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) squad to “fill the gaps” left by the notorious police unit Federal Special Anti-robbery squad(FSARS).
Prospective members will undergo psychological and medical examination for this assignment,” a presidential aide Johannes Tobi tweeted.
“They are to commence training next week.”
In another development, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, also ordered all personnel of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) to report to the force headquarters in Abuja for debriefing, psychological and medical examination.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba.
The formation of the new unit is coming 48 hours after the IGP dissolved SARS following nationwide protests.
