Nigerian President promises more police reforms

A day after the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) police unit was dissolves after multiple claims of acting with impunity, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has promised that more reforms of the police will follow soon. 

He said, “I will like to use this opportunity to say a word on the recent genuine concerns and agitations by Nigerians about the excessive use of force and in some cases extra-judicial killings and wrongful conduct of the men of the Nigerian Police Force. 

“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. 

“We will also ensure that all those responsible for misconduct or wrongful acts are brought to justice.
