“We will no longer protest because many changes are being made at this time. As Marlian we will give them a week to see the changes and if there are no changes we will start a massive protest,” he tweeted.
The IGP statement says:
“The Force is irrevocably committed to changing these narratives and undertaking far-reaching reforms to reposition SARS and other tactical squads for better service delivery.
The Orders and Restrictions on SARS Operations and others already issued by the IGP are only the initial steps of the many reforms planned for the Tactical Squads.
The NPF leadership will work with the Ministry of Youth and other stakeholders, including youth leaders, young entrepreneurs, CSOs and others in formulating and implementing consensual reforms.
Today, Tuesday, October 6, 2020, at 11 a.m. M., Force PRO-DCP Frank Mba will have a live Instagram chat with Naira Marley to answer questions and discuss the concerns of young Nigerians about the problems of SARS operations and other hot topics. Please stay tuned.”
