Replacing SARS With SWAT Is Like Changing NEPA To PHCN – Reno Omokri



Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former media aide to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan, has criticised the formation of a new police unit to replace the dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

MERIDIAN SPY reported Tuesday Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), announced the set up of a new police unit named ‘Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team’ that will fill the gaps arising from the dissolution of the defunct SARS.

“Prospective members of this new team will also undergo psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment,” the IGP stated.

“They are to commence training at the different Police tactical training institutions nationwide, next week.”

However, reacting via his verified Twitter handle, Omokri said replacing the defunct SARS with the new SWAT unit without purging out the errant police officers in the mix, was like “when NEPA was changed to PHCN”.

“The SWAT announced by the @PoliceIGP is a Greek Gift,” he noted.

“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.”
