He confirmed this while during a one-day visit to Lagos State on Thursday, where he inaugurated various projects.

“We are currently recruiting 10,000 new police officers to reinforce our personnel capacity across the country.

“In addition, I have directed the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission to carry out an upward review of Police salaries and benefits.

“Let me also use this opportunity to commend the leadership of the Force for their efforts, for the reforms being implemented in the area of police pensions.

“I have charged the Inspector General of Police to leave no stone unturned in the rebuilding of the morale of his officers and men.

“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 other assault weapons remain in place,” Buhari said.

President Buhari said that no government since 1999 had been as committed as his administration in reforming and repositioning the Nigeria Police Force and national policing architecture.
