Speaking at the inauguration ceremony in Abuja, Egbetokun said the squad was made up of trained, well-equipped and highly mobile police officers.
According to him, the squad possesses the capacity for rapid intervention and effective containment of significant security breaches like those currently threatening the suburb of the FCT.
He said the alarming rise in criminal activities without equivocation, demanded immediate and resolute action from all.
“This initiative is not just born out of necessity, but out of foresight, diligent planning and commitment to enhancing the already robust security architecture of the FCT.
“The FCT remains a bastion of safety and an example of efficient urban security management and in our pursuit of excellence, we must proactively address even the slightest signs of potential threats.
“We are thus duty-bound to confront all challenges head-on to protect the lives and welfare of our citizens,” I-G said.
