He disclosed this while delivering a speech at the launch of the presidential youth empowerment scheme at the State House in Abuja.

“I will like to use this opportunity to say a word on the recent genuine concerns and agitations by Nigerians about the excessive use of force and in some cases extra-judicial killings and wrongful conduct of the men of the Nigerian Police Force.
