Sars ban: Nigeria's Buhari pledges 'extensive' police reforms

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has promised "extensive" reforms amid protests against police brutality.

He also promised justice for victims of police abuse and an investigation into the death of a protester in Oyo state.

Demonstrators have long called for the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (Sars) to be broken up.

But they remain unhappy following Sunday's announcement that officers are being redeployed to other units rather than being disciplined.

In his video address on Monday, President Buhari said disbanding Sars was "only the first step" in a range of reforms, but added that police officers were hard-working, and the reputation of the force should not be tarnished by a "few bad eggs".The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people. pic.twitter.com/XjQMS…

Watch: Woman disrupts wedding in Catholic church; claims groom is her husband and they slept together only hours earlier

"Father, hold on" is currently trending in Zambia after a woman disrupted a Catholic church wedding with her children to claim the groom is her husband who slept on the same bed with her the previous night.

The woman says in the now-viral video that there is no issue between her and her husband and they didn't quarrel. She said he left for his secret wedding from their home that morning and she had no idea he was remarrying.

She added that the kids with her are his.
The video begins with a Catholic priest officiating the wedding of a couple when a woman's loud voice causes a distraction.

"Father, hold on," the woman screams as she makes her entrance into the church wearing a face mask with a child strapped to her back.

Despite efforts to hold her back, she pushes her way to the front of the altar and starts explaining to the priest that she and her husband were together in their bed only hours earlier and she's shocked to now see him marrying another woman.
