President Buhari: promises extensive police reforms following SARS disbandment

President Muhammed Buhari of Nigeria on Monday promised action against police officers that had misused powers even to them in the West African country.

Buhari’s comment came just a day after the government announced the dismissal of the special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), whose officers have been accused of crimes including extrajudicial killings.

The dismissal of the police unit came after days of mass protest in the country and by Nigerians abroad.
“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 livelihoods of our people,”said President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We will make sure that all those that misuse the law and those wrongful and awful acts are all brought to justice ,” he added.

The president further added that “ it is important to acknowledge that the boundless majority of men and women of the police force are hardworking and diligent industrious in performing their duties the few that misuse the law should not be allowed to stain the image and character of the force”.
