Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo has apologized to the people and also admitted the fault of the government in the recent happenings.
According to him the government did not move faster in addressing the demands of Nigerians calling for a total ban of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS unit of the police.
Osinbajo, in a series of tweets on Friday night, said he knows many Nigerians are angry, and that their anger was justified.
He said he understands the feeling of many young people in the country, noting that many feel that the government has been too silent and has simply not done enough, adding that the feelings of frustration are justified.
He noted that far too many people have been brutalized by the police, saying that this is unacceptable, adding that it was the responsibility of the government to protect young people, even from those who are paid to protect them.
