Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Thursday, walked along with hundreds of #EndSARS protesters to the police headquarters in Ilorin, urging them to remain calm and peaceful while their grievances are promptly addressed.

His spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye, in a statement, said the governor joined the protest from the Government House, Ilorin, where they had converged.

He said AbdulRazaq briefly addressed the protesters and then led them to the police headquarters on their request.

AbdulRazaq said the young people had spoken loud and clear and would have their interest protected by the government.

He announced the setting up of an ombudsman through which people could channel their grievances and have same attended to in the state.

The governor said the ombudsman would be the go-between for aggrieved citizens and security agencies.

“However you look at it, we are all victims.

“I have since joined the protest.

“Some of you may notice online that I joined a Zoom meeting on Monday with Hajia Aisha Yesufu, Aliko Dangote, Wizkid and others to arrive at a resolution on this protest.

“It was part of this that led to the five-point agenda which is being implemented now by the federal government.

“The President is definitely listening to the complaints,”  AbdulRazaq said.

“The Commissioner of Police has listened to your complaints here.

“I have also listened. I thank you for your calmness,” he said.
