Against media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the establishment of State and local government police, the President has denied the approval.

In a state house release posted on Monday evening, Presidency debunked the circulated report.

Clarifying the meeting held on Monday morning, a post from the official Twitter account of the President says;

“Pres @MBuhari Monday received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). The President requested that the report be studied & a white paper produced within 3 months.”
