‘No need to continue the protest since SARS has been disbanded’ — Senate President cries out

The president of the Nigerian Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan has cried out to Nigerian youths to stop the endSARS protest as the controversial Police unit has been disbanded.

Ahmad said this during plenary on Tuesday October 13, 2020, following a motion by Buhari Abdulfatai, the Senator representing Oyo North Senatorial District to seek the leave of the Senate to present a motion on the death of a member of his constituency, Jimoh Isiaka, and attack on the Palace of Soun of Ogbomoso.

“The protest has yielded the desired result so far and there won’t be need to continue the protest again when SARS has been disbanded and those culprits who are involved in the killings should be brought to book,”Lawan said.

He further stated that it was right for the people to protest and condemned the conduct of the SARS operatives. Following Abdulfatai’s motion, the Senate resolved to observe a minute silence in honor of the deceased and other Nigerians who lost their lives to Police brutality.
