Despite stiff opposition, the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit, which was established to replace the recently dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), will today, commence training at the Police Mobile Force (PMF) Training School, Ila Oragun, Osun State and the PMF Training School, Ende Hills, Nasarawa State.

Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, who disclosed this yesterday in Abuja, said the force was partnering with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and other development partners for the tooling of the new team.

“The Inspector General of Police has reaffirmed that the new police tactical team will operate within very high professional and ethical standards, rule of law and dictates of best international policing practices,” he reiterated.
