The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate deployment of recently trained officers of the special Weapon and Tactical Team, SWAT.

Adamu ordered SWAT deployment for routine patrols across the country.

The IGP’s directive was addressed to the 17 Assistant Inspector Generals of Police in the Force and Commissioners of Police in Nigeria.

A statement with reference number CH:5350/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOL.20/340 was tagged “Deployment of Newly Formed Special Weapon and Tactical Team operatives,” Vanguard reports.

The statement read: “The Inspector General of Police directs that all recently selected and trained Special Weapon and Tactical Team (SWAT) operatives are to be deployed for routine duties across areas of responsibility immediately.”

The IGP had inaugurated SWAT following the disbandment of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, F-SARS.

F-SARS was disbanded due to brutality and extortion of Nigerians.

The brutality perpetrated by the unit had led to a widespread protest tagged End SARS.
