The operation of the new security outfit called ‘NDLEA SWAT’ which means Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency Special Weapon and Tactical Team has since sparked angry reactions among Nigerians.
Some queried authorities on why they are on major roads wielding guns and searching peoples phone just like members of defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) police unit were often accused of before it was disbanded.
It would be recalled that protests against the defunct SARS and police brutality broke out in different states in October, which ran for about 2 weeks.
The police unit was accused of its high-handedness such extortion, brutality, maiming and even killing of Nigerians especially youths.
This led to the disbandment of the unit and establishment of Special Weapon and Tactical Team (SWAT), a unit which Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu deployed for routine patrols across the country amid several calls for better security.
