The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, is currently meeting with the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammad Abubakar Adamu.Saraki met Adamu on Wednesday to discuss the Police Reform Bill and the Police Trust Fund Bill.
We recalls that Saraki while reacting to the killing of one Kolade Johnson by men believed to be officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS Nigerians had said, “My heartfelt prayers are with the family and friends of Kolade Johnson, the young football fan who was allegedly killed by men of the Nigerian Police in Mangoro/Onipetesi community in Lagos.
“Issues like the senseless killings, assault and extortion of everyday Nigerians by some ‘bad apples’ in the Police Force is what prompted @NGRSenate to introduce and fast-track the progression of the #PoliceRefirnBill.
“I have also been in contact with the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Police Affairs and I am pleased to announce that the Report of the #PoliceReformBill will be laid by next week Tuesday.
“Make no mistake, the 8th Senate remains committed to the passage of the Police Reform Bill to ensure that our Police Force is more efficient and responsive to the needs of all Nigerians.”
For a better society
