THE GAP: Get off the roads, embrace dialogue – Governor Sanwo Olu asks protesters #EndSARS

Lagos Governor Babajide Sanvo-Olu has called on #EndSARS protesters to leave the road. Let us remind you that the demonstrators spoke out against police brutality and extrajudicial executions.

He urged them to leave the streets and go into dialogue. This is stated in the statement of the chief press secretary of the governor Gboega Akosile entitled “Leave the road and dialogue, Sanvo-Olu’s appeal to the protesters.”

The #EndSARS protests that shook the country lasted for almost two weeks, with young people calling for a long-term reform of the Nigerian police force. The young people blocked the main roads, which marked the beginning of economic activity. Speaking on Monday as members of the Judicial Investigation and Restitution Commission at the State House in Marina swear, Sanwo-Olu said the protesters’ expressed pain and concerns are genuine and legitimate. The Governor would say: “We have demonstrated an unprecedented commitment to overhauling the Nigerian police force.

The inauguration of this judicial commission of inquiry is only the first step in a long series of reforms that will lead to a complete renewal and reorientation of the Nigerian police force. I believe that some of the actions that we have taken should largely indicate our sincerity and willingness to solve all your problems.

“Let me repeat that I am on the side of young people. I understand your pain and I know that your fears are sincere and legitimate. While we may agree to some of your requests immediately, others will take time to complete.

We ask you to be patient as we work hard on your requests. “Therefore, I want to once again appeal to you to end the protests and create an atmosphere for the resolution of all outstanding requests. I urge everyone who has been mistreated since the disbanded SARS, including the families of the victims, to go to this court. ”
