The new Nigerian police tactical unit, Special Weapons And Tactics Squad, created to replace the defunct SARS has begun its special training.
SWAT was introduced by the police after days of protests to #EndSARS over their incessant harassment and murder of youth in the country.
The police had stated that the new squad would be different as it wouldn’t be sent on patrols or stop and search rather only summoned when needed.
A video shared by Channels TV, shows the moment the Minister of Police Affairs, inspected the SWAT officers were rigorously engaged in their training session.
Nigerians have swooped to social media to comment on the training which some have dubbed different kinds of unique.
