The officers and members of the newly created SWAT unit are expected to participate in a three -week training to be held at the Police Mobile Force Training School, Ila Oragun, Osun State, and the PMF Training School, Ende Hills, Nasarawa State.

This was made known by the Nigeria Police Force spokesperson, DCP Frank Mba. The newly created SWAT unit would replace them disbanded SARS unit after Nigerians rose in protest against the highhandedness, human rights abuse, force arrest, extortion amongst others.

The training of the newly created SWAT unit would cover in modern-day police ethics and values, intelligence-led policing, operation planning/tactical decision-making processes, hostage rescue tactics and operation, weapon handling, first aid/basic life-saving skills, stress/fear management, police-citizens relations, and emotional intelligence.

However, Nigerians are asking when was the recruitment for the newly created police unit carried out. How can there be training personnel when no recruitment was carried out.

There are fears that what the IG of police dd was a just a change of name from SARS to SWAT, not disbandment as claimed by the police boss. If this is the case it will do little to address the  problems because it still remains garbage in garbage out.
