The Inspector-general of Police, Mohammad Adamu has established a new Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) squad as a replacement for the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force.

“The IGP has also set up a new Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) Tram will fill the gaps arising from dissolution of the defunct SARS. Prospective members will undergo psychological and medical examination for this assignment,” a presidential aide Johannes Tobi tweeted.

They are to commence training next week.”

Nigerians who found it amusing that instead of scrapping SARS, the IGP decided to rename, took to social media to air their displeasure with the creation of the new police unit.
