Nigerian Government Proposes SWAT to Replace SARS

The continuation of the protests after the president disbanded SARS now makes more sense. I believe that the Nigerian youths already foresaw this and decided not to back down on the protests until this special unit is completely dissolved.


In response to the ending of sars, the federal government claimed to have dissolved this unit, but soon after, they brought up its replacement as SWAT( Special Weapons and Tactics Team) as a better replacement by making the recruits go through a psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and validity for the assignment.

Well, despite the fact that this new team would undergo a psychological and medical examination, Nigerians are not in support of this as they believe that the only thing the Federal Government did was to change the name of the special unit.

What do you have to say about this? What do you think the Government’s true agenda is? To change the name of this special unit or to really make a change and reform the entire department?
