The Nigeria Senate has urged the Federal Government to speed up the implementation of the five-point demands of the EndSARS protesters.

Senate Spokesperson, Ajibo Basiru who made this known to newsmen said Presidential Panel on the Reform of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad approved the five-point demands put forward by youths protesting against the brutality and extrajudicial killings by operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

 

Although the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, scrapped the police unit last Sunday and announced a replacement, the protesters want the police authorities to carry out psychological evaluation and re-training of all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.

 

Nigerian youths demand the release of all arrested protesters, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families.

 

They also want increased salaries for police officers as well as the establishment of an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct.

 

The government and some business leaders had tried to persuade the youths to leave the streets but the protesters have insisted that until the government implement their demands, the demonstrations would continue.
