“The Church welcomes the disbandment of the SARS, and notes the establishment of a new outfit called the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) but advises that it should not be a case of old wine in a new bottle.”
RCCG urged young Nigerians to comport themselves orderly across the country and express themselves within the confines of the law.
