Police in Nigeria have launched a radio station in the hopes of improving their relationship with ordinary citizens, the BBC reports.

Police boss Mohammed Adamu said community policing information would be broadcast and the new service would help reach the public better.

It comes months after young Nigerians led widespread protests against police brutality and extrajudicial killings. Those demonstrations, dubbed #EndSARS in reference to a particular hated police unit, later morphed into a call for major police reforms.

An inquiry into the cases was set up aimed at bringing to justice those responsible for the brutality and killings, but some campaigners fear it will be toothless.
