The Nigeria Police Force have partnered with popular entertainer Naira Marley to create awareness on how the Force’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad will be reformed.
The Police Force made the announcement after the singer canceled his #ENDSARS protest scheduled to hold today.
The Anti-Robbery Squad has been under attack over recurring reports of brutality, extortion and extrajudicial killing.
However, a statement released by the Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday morning urged Nigerian youths to be calm and law-abiding. It noted that their voices have been heard loudly and clearly.
The statement also confirmed that the Force PRO- DCP Frank Mba will be having a live Instagram chat with Naira Marley by 11 am today.
