The Presidency has denied that President Buhari approved the establishment of State, Local Government Police.

The Presidency said that Buhari had requested that the report would be studied and white paper produced within three months.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu in a statement said, Buhari received a report on the reform of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
