It is true that the campaign for the Federal Government and the IGP to disband SARS has yielded listening ear to douse the tension caused by ailling officers who use their position as law enforcement officers to maltreat, threaten, abuse and intimidate Nigerian people in the name of discharging their official duties.

But there are a whole lot of unclarities as regard its benefits to the country since this new nomenclature SWAT is trending in place of SARS.

Nigerians are likening it to the similar change of NEPA to PHCN and so on that never gave the country and good till date.

It is therefore the wish of patriotic Nigerians to see this development improve the country and to make its citizens smile.

Meanwhile, Aisha Yesufu he had earlier asked if it Nigeria can have body cam for every police man or woman who is given a gun to enable the smooth end of Sars and end Police Brutality in Nigeria?

In her words “while some are jostling for who is there or not I am having to pursue the youth organising in Abuja to attend media engagement. They are focused on what they are doing and not interested in who takes the glory. I had a talk with them earlier on importance of media engagement”

Briefing newsmen earlier today, Aisha retirate the need to insist on a“Truth and Reconciliation Open Panel” that will address the years of police killings, extortion, rape, brutality and oppression.
