President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday reacted to the ongoing protest in parts of the country pushing for the outright ban on the police Special Anti- robbery squad, SARS.
In a tweet on his verified account, Buhari said he had met with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and told him to “conclusively address the concerns of Nigerians” regarding the excesses of police personnel especially, SARS.
