The Police at the weekend disbanded all satellite offices and bases of the Intelligence Response Squad (IRT) and Special Tactical Squad (STS).

The directive followed moves by the Force Headquarters to reposition the police and ensure accountability as well as due process.

The Nation reports that the IRT and STS were recently integrated into the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) headed by Ibrahim Lamorde to improve efficiency and ensure operational discipline.

According to a signal sighted by our Correspondent, the Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) in charge of IRT (Abba Kyari) and Yusuf Kolo (STS) are to ensure that all bases and offices outside Abuja were shut with immediate effect.

 

It was learnt that the disbanded offices were ordered to submit all firearms in their possession to the central armoury, all suspects in their custody transferred to the state command’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) while cases already charged to court but investigation not concluded be moved to State Criminal investigation Departments (SCID).

 

Commissioners of Police were also directed to monitor strict compliance of the directive.

 

Already, DCP Kolo in compliance with the directive has asked his sector commanders to “fall-in” with their men, exhibits, suspects arms, and ammunition on July 16 at the unit’s Abuja office to be inspected by the DIG.

 

“You are further directed to warn all your operatives to remove the IGP inscription on their operational kits. The correspondences should bear FIB STS,” Kolo said in a signal to the sector commanders.
