”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,’’ President Buhari

He continued:

 

”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.

 

”We 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 thoroughly investigated.

”Meanwhile, it is important to recognise that the vast majority of 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.”
