JOHANNESBURG - Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said he is determined to end police brutality, introduce reforms and bring “erring personnel to justice”.

His comments came after two days of protests sparked by a video of a man allegedly being killed by police.

The demonstrations are aimed at the federal special anti-robbery squad widely accused of unlawful arrests, torture and murder.

Protesters want the unit disbanded rather than reformed.
