#EndSARS; Buhari meets IGP again, appeals for patience and calm, says the police are fully accountable to the people

Buhari gives freedom to peaceful protest

Erring Police personnel are brought to justice


President Muhammadu Buhari, has again invited the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed to the Aso Villa, yesterday, September 9, 2020. 

In the meeting, Buhari promised Nigerians police accountability, and also gives freedom to peaceful protest

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.

Th IGP 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 and 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 live and livelihoods of Nigerians, and we will continue to support them to do their job.
