VIDEO: Buhari Finally Breaks Silence As #EndSARS Protests Continues
The President promised in a two-minute video from his Twitter account
The disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is just the first step in his commitment to overhaul the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), President Muhammadu Buhari said.
The Gazette remembers that the squad's demise followed days of demonstrations at home and abroad over reports of abuse, violence, and extra-judicial killings by police unit officers.
The President promised in a two-minute video from his Twitter account on Monday that his administration will ensure that the primary responsibility of the police and other law enforcement officials remained to protect people's lives and livelihoods.
The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people. pic.twitter.com/XjQMSr3jlm
