This afternoon at the launching of the Presidential Youth Empowerment Scheme (P-YES), at the State House, President Muhammadu Buhari address the situation if End SARs Brutality Protest Nation wide.
In his speech he said:
“Before I conclude my remarks I would like to use this opportunity to a 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 by men of the Nigerian Police force.
The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive Police reform in order to ensure that the primary duty of the Police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihoods of our people.
We will also ensure that all those responsible for misconduct or wrongful acts are brought to justice. We also deeply regret the loss of life of the young man in Oyo State during the recent demonstrations. I have directed that the circumstances of his death should be throughly investigated.
Meanwhile, it is important to recognize that the vast majority of the men and women of the police force are hardworking and diligent in performing their duties. The few bad eggs should not be allowed to tarnish the image and reputation of the force.”
