SARS: Buhari meets Osinbajo, Inspector General of Police, tells them what to do

President Buhari has met with VP Osinbajo and IGP on the Police/SARS matter and assures reform is inevitable. The president also affirmed rights of Nigerians to peaceful protests.

Below is a direct statement from the president:

"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 and 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."
