#EndSARS: "SWAT Will Just Be Like When NEPA Changed To PHCN" – Reno Omokri 1

KanyiDaily recalls that IGP Adamu had earlier announced that the SWAT team will replace the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) which was disbanded following nationwide protests over its brutality, illegal arrest, extortion, extra-judicial killings, among others.

Reacting to the development on his Twitter pageon Tuesday, Reno Omokri insisted that the change of name from SARS to SWAT cannot translate to a change of attitude which is what Nigerians are demanding.

The former presidential aide compared the development to when the NEPA was changed to PHCN without any noticeable change in performance. He wrote:

“The SWAT announced by the @PoliceIGP is a Greek Gift. Without weeding out errant cops and recruiting new blood, who must go through a different and better training than SARS, the SWAT will just be like when NEPA changed to PHCN #ENDSARS #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria#SARSMUSTEND.”

Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike said he prayed for killings, kidnapping and armed robbery to spread across Nigeria because the Federal Government did not take him seriously when he raised an alarm over the brutalities suffered by his people in the hand of the dissolved Special Anti-Armed Robbery Squad (SARS).
