Buhari addresses #EndSARS Campaigners
NEWSMAN, Abuja – President Muhammadu has addressed the nation concerning the ongoing nationwide protests against the brutality and extrajudicial killings by men of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force (SARS) in the country, says the disbandment of the police unit was a first step to “extensive police reforms”.
The president, in a broadcast uploaded on his verified Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Monday said his government is committed to ensuring that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of Nigerians.
The president also noted that “a vast majority of police officers are hardworking and diligent, and that the few bad eggs should not be allowed to tarnish the reputation of the force.”
Despite the move by the Federal Government to end the operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad as demanded by many protesting Nigerians, there seems to be a dissatisfaction as the protests are still ongoing.
