My directive to shoot criminals with AK-47 stands – Buhari

President Buhari on Thursday declared his support for the Nigeria Police Force and expressed his intolerance for all criminal activities in Lagos State and the entire country.

Buhari spoke at the Police College, Ikeja, during the inauguration of security vehicles and crime-fighting equipment bought by the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for the Lagos State Police Command.

Buhari said, “We will deal firmly and decisively against any and all persons fomenting or carrying out attacks on our police force or other security personnel.  Let me also use this opportunity to reiterate that my directive to security agencies to shoot any person or persons found illegally with AK-47 and any other assault weapons remains in place.”

Buhari commended Sanwo-Olu for the security equipment, noting that it was a move against the setback posed by the wave of #EndSARS protests in the state, which would boost policemen’s morale.
