Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari comments on the #ENDSARS protests spreading across the nation.
He assures of his administration’s commitment to reforming the SARS unit across Nigeria.
The President, made the comments in a series of tweets on Friday night, said he had met with the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, who he said has briefed him on moves to reform the unit.
He urged Nigerians to be patient and calm as they freely exercise their right to protest peacefully.
Buhari tweeted: “I met again with the IGP tonight. Our determination to reform the police should never be in doubt.
“I am being briefed regularly on the reform efforts ongoing to end police brutality and unethical conduct, and ensure that the Police are fully accountable to the people.
“The IG already has my firm instructions to conclusively address the concerns of Nigerians regarding these excesses, & ensure erring personnel are brought to justice.
“I appeal for patience & calm, even as Nigerians 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 Nigerians, and we will continue to support them to do their job.
He did not refer to the disruption of peaceful protest in Abuja with tear gas nor attempt to disrupt another peaceful protest in Lagos, at the Lagos State Secretariat on Thursday night.
