The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has queried the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, as regards the timing of the creation of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team saying it was inauspicious. The state chief executives stated this after receiving brief on national security from the IGP at their 18th teleconference yesterday in Abuja.

NGF, in a communiqué issued by its Chairman, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, disclosed that the forum deliberated on a number of issues affecting the country, particularly the nationwide protests against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the police.

According to Fayemi,the IGP informed the forum that after a psychological and medical evaluation, SWAT officers would be trained and posted to all state commands to operate only on intelligence-driven operation.

Adamu assured the governors that he would ensure that the new Police Act 2020 would carry out extensive reforms within the police and pleaded for the support, understanding and guidance of governors to embark on the reforms.

In response, NGF acknowledged the concerns of Nigerians, especially youths, that had been affected by the excesses of SARS officers.
Protesters in Edo state also yesterday added the “humongous salaries” of political office holders to their agitation.

The carnival-like procession took over the entire Lagos/Benin highway and the flyover opposite the University of Benin with disk jockeys blasting revolutionary songs of legends,Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti, also Idris Abdulkareem and several other popular artistes. The protesters rejected the newly-formed SWAT and called for total reform of the police force.
