Special Squad FCT

The Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, has initiated the Special Intervention Squad in the Federal Capital Territory to address the rise in kidnapping and banditry, particularly in border towns. The squad is tasked with patrolling and securing FCT communities along its borders, intervening to prevent and reduce violent attacks in the nation’s capital.

The Nigeria Police Force announced in late 2023 that the deployment of 40,000 trained operatives of the Special Intervention Squad would commence in Katsina and nine other states, including the FCT.
