The Presidency has denied report circulating round that President Muhammadu Buhari has signed bill creating state and local police into law.
Reacting to the report, Tolu Ogunlesi, the special assistant to the President on digital media described it as fake.
“Fake News. There were no “approvals” given. Ceremony was for submission of Panel Report (more than 2,000 pages long) – which made several recommendations. President received Report & directed IGP, Min of Justice & NHRC to “work out modalities for implementation within 3 months.”
