However, after successfully defying that order by pouring out to the streets of Port Harcourt to protest on Tuesday, the Rivers governor quickly changed his stance by calling for an overhaul of the police in Nigeria.

He argued that if the police was not reformed, the government will transfer the same people under SARS to another units.
