#EndSARS: Buhari Has Failed to Reform Police – Amnesty International

– Amnesty International (AI) slams President Muhamamdu Buhari over failure to address Police reform.

– Amnesty International (AI) accuses Police of stealing from suspects.

Amnesty International (AI) has lambasted the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), for allegedly killing Kolade Johnson, who was shot dead while leaving a football viewing centre on Olu Aboderin Street, Iyana Ipaja, Lagos, on Sunday.

 iDONSABI reports that Johnson was killed by a trigger happy Policeman when an unmarked commercial bus visited Mangoro/Onipetesi community in Lagos, on Sunday afternoon in search of youths dressed inappropriately and wearing dreadlocks.

While stating that the call to scrap SARS and reform the police had not been taking seriously, AI said efforts put in place by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had failed even as it blamed the judiciary for failing to punish police torture.

According got the organisation, SARS continues to use torture to extract confessions from suspects, adding that the police unit seems not to be accountable to anyone.
