Nigerian Police Announces Newly Created SWAT to Replace Dissolved SARS

The Nigeria Police Force has announced the new creation of Anti-Robbery Unit called Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), to replace the recently-dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

About few days ago, IGP dissolved the highly controversial SARS, following nationwide protests against the extra-judicial activities of the group that have escalated over the past few years.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, said in a statement on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 that SWAT will fill the gaps left by SARS whose main role was tackling violent crimes especially armed robbery and kidnapping.

“Prospective members of this new team will also undergo psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment,” the statement read.
