Commander Yusuf Kolo, the man who commanded the dissolved Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) has been appointed as the commander of the new Special Weapon And Tactics unit (SWAT)
It can be recalled that the same officer had been accused of being the brain behind the torture of a young man in 2014 who unfortunately lost his life in the process.
Calls to #EndSARS are not new. Earlier this year, an investigation by #BBCAfricaEye found that SARS officer, Yusuf Kolo tortured a young man to death in 2014. Kolo was later promoted. Twice. Today, he commands the Special Tactical Squad.

The question on everyone’s mind is that, what will be new of the operations of the SWAT with the same man as its commander? The Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed however insists that the operations of SWAT will differ greatly from that of SARS.
