Protesters in Nigeria have been demanding at end to police brutalities forcing the government to disband the notorious police unit called the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).

The government then replaced the disbanded unit with a new one called the Special Weapons and Tactics (Swat) to carry out the duties handled by the Sars.
