President Buhari addresses #EndSARS protesters, vows to ensure erring officers are brought to justice (video)

President Buhari has finally addressed Nigerians since the beginning of the nationwide #EndSARS protests.

In a two-minute video posted on his Twitter handle this afternoon October 12, President Buhari said the disbandment of the police unit was the first step to extensive police reforms. The President added that operatives of the disbanded SARS found guilty of any form of offense would be brought to justice.

“Let me 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 extrajudicial killings and wrongful conduct by men of the Nigerian Police Force.

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 act are brought to justice” he said

The president also commented on the killing of a young man, Jimoh Isiaka, during the #EndSARS protest in Ogbomosho, Oyo state on Saturday, October 10.
