According to Vanguard, the IGP’s directive was addressed to the 17 Assistant Inspector Generals of Police in the Force and all the Commissioners of Police in the country including the FCT.

A senior police source said that the patrol by the SWAT operatives is part of security measures being put in place by the IGP to checkmate the increased spate of insecurity across the country.

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.”

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

IGP Adamu noted further that the deployment of the personnel should be carried out immediately pending when they will be mobilized and kitted for their primary operations.

KanyiDaaily recalls that IGP Adamu had inaugurated SWAT following the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) due to numerous allegations of brutality, human rights violations and extrajudicial killings.
