The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi was a special guest at the Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) training camp, as the Minister visited the personnel of the new police team at Ende Hills in Eggon Nasarawa State.
In his address speech to the members of the SWAT recruit, he told them that the exercise is to bring them up to speed as they should be dedicated and show full commitment. He urged them to always be their brothers’ keepers and they should have it in mind that they are the replacement of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and should be good ambassador of the country, the police force, and also respect the principles of human rights.
The training which involved lots of drills like martial art, positioning, shooting practice, and cover up training sections, has a mixed gender training, as females were also seen participating effectively and following every command.
“I believe by the end of this exercise you are going to come out very dedicated and committed police mobile officers who will be equal to the task as you are the direct replacement of SARS. We want you to understand that situations have changed for the better and you are to represent the force as good ambassadors.” Muhammad Dingyadi says.
