Catriona Laing, British high commissioner to Nigeria, late Sunday, called on the federal government to respect the rights of its citizens to protest.

“Welcome the government announcement on the future of #SARS- an important first step. The IGP’s commitment to ensure accountability for human rights violations is essential to restoring public confidence,”

“Hearing reports of violence affecting ongoing protests. Urge authorities to respect the right to protest and protesters to remain peaceful.”

Liang commended the federal government’s decision to disband the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) and urged protesters to remain peaceful amid the protests.

Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), had dissolved the police unit after days of protests across the country.

Laing also said the IGP’s commitment to ensure accountability for human rights violations is necessary in restoring the people’s confidence in the police.
