“I stand with my Nigerian brothers and sisters to end police brutality, the government must answer to the peoples cries #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria,” he tweeted.

Nigerians on Monday continued their protests to pressure the Federal Government to follow through on disbanding the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Despite the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Muhammed, announcing the dissolution of the FSARS in after widespread protest on Sunday, Nigerians continued their protests on Monday to pressure the Federal Government to act on disbanding the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The protesters blocked highways in Lagos on Monday, demanding that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), addresses them.

Buhari on Monday maintained that “disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms”.

“The purpose of law enforcement and the purpose of policing is for the safety of lives and livelihood of Nigerians,” he said.
