S/west senators flay use of force against protesters

#EndSARS protesters rush an injured member to a hospital in P-Harcourt yesterday

The South West Caucus in the Senate has condemned the use of brute force against peaceful #EndSARS protesters by security agents.

They also deplored the wanton destruction of public and private property by hoodlums.

This is contained in a communique issued by the 17 senators from the six South West States after a meeting on Thursday.

While recognising the right of citizens to ventilate their grievances by way of peaceful protests, the lawmakers urged the #EndSARS protesters to exercise restraints to enable the government implement their demands.

They equally enjoined President Muhammadu Buhari and all security agencies to ensure security of lives and property in all parts of the country.

“We’ve received the 5-point demands of the genuine #EndSARS protesters and we identify with the demands. With our colleagues in the Senate, we’ve passed these demands to the Federal Executive for implementation,” they said.
