IGP disbands tactical squad over search of Edwin Clark?s house

The Inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, has ordered the immediate disbandment of the IGP Special Tactical Squad (IGP-STS).
 
 
A statement by the spokesperson of the force, Jimoh Moshood, said the ban is as a result of the recent invasion of the residence of Edwin Clark, Ijaw national leader. Moshood said senior officers of the squad who were linked to the raid were undergoing disciplinary procedures.
 
“The tactical operations and statutory core police duties that the dissolved Special Tactical Squad were charged with are now collapsed and will be carried out by other operational, investigative and response units of the force.
 
Senior officers attached to the erstwhile Special Tactical Squad (STS) who were linked with complicity or played conspiracy role(s) in the unauthorised, illegal and unprofessional misconduct in the search of elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark’s residence in Asokoro, Abuja on the 4th of September, 2018 are now undergoing strict disciplinary procedures.”
