BREAKING; Police shuts all IRT, Special Tactical Squad Units, as IGP gives specific orders
A new twist emerged on Tuesday in the ongoing travials of suspended Police super cop, Abba Kyari.
In view of his alleged involvement in drug deals and internet frauds, which also saw four other top senior officers in the police force indicted by the NDLEA, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the closure of all satellite units of the police Intelligence Response Team and Special Tactical Squad across the country.
All serving officers in the satellite units have, therefore, been asked to report to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for debriefing.
Channels Television reported that a police source confirmed this on Tuesday, adding that authorities have directed that serving officers and men in the unit will be demobilised and posted to commands across the country.
Meanwhile, the Force management also directed that the IRT/STS Headquarters in Abuja should be fortified and organised for enhanced operational performance to combat emerging trends.
