Reacting to the nationwide protest, President Muhammadu Buhari assured Nigerians that the security operatives had been disbanded but added that officers of the squad will be redeployed to other police units.
This clause has confused a lot of Nigerians who fear that the officers may become vindictive in the nearest future.
However, President Buhari explained that this development commences the years-long call for the reform of the Nigerian Police and various security body.
His words: “I want to use this opportunity to say I am aware of the recent genuine concerns and agitations by Nigerians by the excessive use of force, in some cases extra-judicial 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 ensure that the officers responsible for wrongful deaths are brought to justice
“We also deeply regret the death of the young man in Oyo State during the recent demonstrations. I have ordered that the circumstances of his death should be thoroughly investigated.
“Meanwhile it is important to recognise that the vast majority of men and women in the police force are hardworking and diligent in performing their duties.
“The few bad eggs should not be allowed to tarnish the image and the reputation of the force.”
Addressing the protesters on microblogging site Twitter, the leading force of the #EndSARS protester told other protesters to fix their “eye on the ball.”
