With end not seem to be in sight for the ongoing #EndSARS nationwide protests, the Nigerian Government has apologized to all those who fell victim of the once dreaded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) police unit.
The latest apology came from the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo, in a statement released on his social media handles.
Osibanjo condemned the disbanded unit for unleashing terror on the public whose taxes are used to pay their salaries.
He regretted that the government did not move fast enough to curtail the excesses of the unit and pleaded with Nigerians for patience as Federal Government embark on police reforms
“Dear Nigerians, I know that many of you are angry, and understandably so. We could’ve moved faster and for this we are sorry.
“There are far too many people who have been brutalised at the hands of the police and this is unacceptable.
“We must take responsibility for protecting young people, even sometimes from those who are paid to protect them,” Osibanjo wrote.
