#EndSars: Governor of Lagos State join the protest and received the youths demands

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday join the EndSars Protest in Alausa area of the state. Here is what he said;

I joined the #ENDSARS protesters in Alausa and received a letter of their demands and once again I reiterated my support. 

I am now on my way to Abuja to meet with H.E President Muhammed Buhari and the goal of the conversation is clear. 

Tangible next steps to #EndPoliceBrutality

I came back from Abuja with news that I believe will lead to concrete steps to #EndPoliceBrutality. 

I met with the IGP. Starting from this week, a panel, comprising of citizens will be set up to look into all cases of abuse by the police around the country. 
SARS officials have immediately been asked to leave the streets around the country following their disbandment and return to police headquarters for debriefing and psychological examination.

A deep look at their activities will commence. The work will be exhaustive; so prepare to submit your queries within the parameters they will share.
In Lagos, we have immediately set up a trust fund that will be managed by nominated members of the public and CSOs to compensate families that have lost loved ones to police brutality. 

People like the wife of Mr Okechukwu Ilo who died in tragic circumstances will not be left out.
