Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has promised “extensive” police reforms as protests against police brutality continue despite his announcement that the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad has been disbanded.

In a video posted on Twitter, he also promised justice for victims of police abuse, and expressed regret for the loss of lives in south-western Oyo state during the protests.

Mr Buhari added that most police officers were hard-working, and the reputation of the force should not be tarnished by a “few bad eggs”.
