The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, has ordered the immediate disbandment of all satellite units of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) and Special Tactical Squad (STS) across the country.
A Channels Television report says that all serving officers in the satellite units were asked to report to the Force Headquarters, Abuja, for debriefing.

The development comes a day after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) gave an insight into how suspended Deputy Police Commissioner, Abba Kyari, used men of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) to push drugs across Nigeria.
The NDLEA said despite being on suspension, Mr Kyari claimed to be in control of the IRT and still had policemen loyal to him.
The NDLEA spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, while revealing to journalists how the suspended IRT belonged to a drug cartel that operates the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria illicit drug pipeline, said a covert operation was conducted to expose the officer.
The former police intelligence unit commander was indicted last year in an internet fraud case by a U.S court, following extensive investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
