Abia police inaugurates tactical response squad


The Abia State Police Command has inaugurated 300 officers and men into the newly introduced special tactical response squad, otherwise known as “operation combatant ready”.

Oyebade said this would reduce crime and assured the people the crime-preventive squad will work with the government.
