The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris on Friday ordered the immediate disbandment of the IGP Special Tactical Squad (IGP-STS).

Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
According to Moshood, the tactical operations and statutory core police duties that the dissolved squad was charged with have been collapsed.
They will henceforth be carried out by other operational, investigative and response units of the Force.
The statement read in part: “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.”
Owojela's Blog recalls that three inspectors were earlier dismissed by the IGP following search of Edwin Clark’s residence.
