The presidential panel on police reform has accepted the five-point demand of the #EndSARS protesters.
Over the past few days, there have been renewed calls for the scrapping of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) of the Nigeria police force over reports of brutality and extrajudicial killings.
Following the protest, Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), had disbanded the SARS unit.
President Muhammadu Buhari had also issued a directive, calling for a reform of the police force.
According to a statement issued on Tuesday by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, a meeting convened by the IGP with stakeholders agreed to meet the demands, which include halting the use of force against protesters and unconditional release of arrested citizens.
