Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has begged #EndSARS protesters to end the protest and exit the streets of Lagos.
In the statement, the governor stated that the concerns and pains expressed by protesters are undisputable and that some of their demands are currently been addressed.
He made this disclosure while swearing-in members of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution at the State House in Marina.
“We have shown unprecedented commitment to the complete overhaul of the Nigeria Police. The inauguration of this Judicial Panel of Inquiry is only the first step in a long line of reformative actions that will lead to a thorough revamp and reorientation of the Nigeria Police. I believe that some of the actions we have taken should, to a large extent, show our sincerity and willingness to address all your concerns.ADVERTISEMENT
“Let me reiterate that I am on the side of the young people out there. I understand your pain and I know your concerns are genuine and legitimate. While we are able to immediately acquiesce to some of your demands, some others will require time. We ask you to bear with us as we dutifully work on your demands.
“I will, therefore, like to renew my appeal to you to suspend the protests and create an atmosphere for the resolution of all pending demands. I encourage everyone brutalised by the disbanded SARS, including the families of those who died, to present their case before this tribunal.”
