Mohammed stated this on Monday in Abuja at a Special NAN Forum.

The minister explained that the vision would be achievable if the protesters would end the protest, give peace a chance and allow the government to implement its unprecedented reform of the nation’s security architecture.

Mohammed, who regretted that the peaceful protest with genuine demands had been hijacked by hoodlums and people with a selfish motive to destabilise the country, also described End SARS as “one of the most popular and successful protests in the history of this country”,

According to him, the government had started the process of unprecedented reform of the Police and the entire internal security structure following the End SARS protest.

“With every challenge, there is always an opportunity, and the opportunity this protest has given us is to look at a more holistic approach to reforming our internal security.

“For the first time in the history of this country, a special Police tactical unit is being formed which will be supervised not by a Police Command but a committee to be chaired by the Governor of each state with representatives of youths and Civil Society Organisations.

“The committee chaired by the Governor will have the responsibility to supervise the way the special security unit relates to the public and carry out its responsibilities.

“The panel being put up will take complaints from the public with regards to human rights abuses; this has never happened in the history of this country,’’ he said.

Mohammed said that following the EndSARS protest, the government unprecedentedly has directed the setting up of a judicial panel of enquiry in each state to investigate and prosecute erring security officers that had engaged in brutality and extrajudicial killings.

He said that it was also the first time that a government is setting up a Victim Support Fund to compensate victims of Police brutality and extrajudicial killings in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

“In line with the new Police Act, officers to be enlisted in the new tactical Police unit will be tested psychologically and mentally to be sure that they are fit for the operations.

“This will put a big check on Police abuse and extrajudicial killing which we have witnessed over the decades,’’ he said.
