Many Nigerians have welcomed the news that Nigeria's notorious anti-robbery squad, known as Sars, is to have a makeover.

They responded to the presidential statement released on Twitter where a sustained #EndSars campaign has been running. This tweet shows a victorious Fela Kuti - Nigeria's legendary musician, who was never scared of taking on authority.

Yemi Osinbajo, who is acting president while Muhammadu Buhari is on holiday, comes in for much praise for his decision.

The leader of the #EndSars movement, Segun Awosanya, has also been credited for his hard work to highlight the alleged abuses committed by the squad.
