#EndSARS: Address Nigerians Now, Senate Tells Buhari - Vantage News Nigeria
Floor of Nigerian Senate

The Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation immediately on ongoing #EndSARS nationwide protests by youths calling for end to police brutality and bad governance.

In the same vein, the Senate also directed the police to offer protection to the #EndSARS protesters to prevent hoodlums from hijacking their genuine action.

The Senate came to this decision following a point of order by Senator Biodun Olujimi, titled, “#EndSARS: The need for a comprehensive reform”

The senators, however, appealed to the protesters to stop their agitation on the streets while the Federal Government address their demands.

The upper legislative chamber also urged Buhari to immediately set up a judicial panel of enquiry comprising of eminent Nigerians that would be respected by the youths to identify the notorious SARS operatives and ensure their arrest and prosecution.
