SWAT starts training 400 employees

The new police unit, dubbed the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT), began training Monday with more than 400 members of the Mobile Police College in Eggon, Nasarawa State.

The training camp was attended by the Minister of Police Affairs Muhammad Dingyadi and other officials who came to inspect the exercise.

In his opening remarks, the minister said he was satisfied with the progress made by the staff and instructed them to be good role models for the company.

“I believe that by the end of this exercise, you will be a dedicated mobile police officer who can handle the challenge we have given you,” he added.

“Your new responsibility as a replacement for SARS is to address armed robbery and other crime across the country.”

He also acknowledged that times are changing and advised staff to adhere to democratic and human rights principles as they prepare for their new mission.

The minister also assured President Muhammad Bukhari’s staff that they were ready to improve their well-being, and other packages were promised to him.

Personnel over 400 years of age have been trained for several weeks at the college, which is the second largest training location for special forces in the country.
