#EndSARS: Sanwo-Olu meets President Buhari, IGP, presents protesters’ demands

Following the continuing EndSARS protest in Lagos, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was in Abuja on Tuesday to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, on the development.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, presented the demands of the protesters to the President and IGP respectively, in fulfilment of his promise to thousands of protesters championing the EndSARS protests.

The demands from Lagos youths were on the need for the Federal Government to initiate reforms that will bring about positive change and a new orientation among officers of the Nigeria Police.

The reforms are part of the five-point demands of the #EndSARS protesters, who are currently campaigning to end all forms of brutality and extrajudicial killings being committed by some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). Presenting the demands, the governor told the president that the protesters are demanding the release of all the protesters arrested.

”They said we should set up a Trust Fund to pay compensation to the families of those who have died. I have set up my own Trust Fund today and I have announced it.
