President Muhammadu Buhari has finally spoken on the ongoing nationwide protests against alleged brutality and extortion by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The protests have been going on nationwide for over 72 hours.
In a statement late on Friday night, Buhari confirmed that he had met with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
The president expressed his determination to reform the Police Force and ensure that officers are fully accountable to Nigerian People.
“The IG already has my firm instructions to conclusively address the concerns of Nigerian People regarding these excesses and ensure erring personnel are brought to justice. I appeal for patience and calm, even as Nigerian People freely exercise their right to peacefully make their views known.
“The vast majority of men and women of the Nigeria Police Force are patriotic and committed to protecting the lives and livelihoods of Nigerian People, and we will continue to support them to do their job,” the statement posted in his Twitter handle read in part.
On Friday, men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) threw teargas canisters at peaceful protesters in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The police tear-gassed the protesters in a bid to disperse them.
