Although the government has disbanded the notorious unit and created a new unit, protesters are still on the street calling for widespread police reforms.

Reacting to the development, Kallon in a post on his official Twitter page said the decision of the Nigerian government to reform the police is welcomed and the youths should remain peaceful as the process of reforming the police may take time.
