#EndSARS: Senate asks Buhari to address Nigerians.

On Tuesday, October 20, the Senate requested the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired), to promptly address the nation's latest nationwide youth demonstrations against police brutality and poor governance.

The Senate also ordered the police to give the # EndSARS protestors security to avoid the hijacking of their rightful activity by hoodlums and thugs. Senator Biodun Olujimi, representing the Ekiti South constituency and minority leader of the Nigerian Senate, followed up on the Senate resolution on a point of order.

Federal lawmakers asked the demonstrators to end their street unrest while their concerns are discussed by the Federal Government. They also urged Buhari to create immediately a judicial panel of inquiry made up of prominent Nigerians to recognize the dreaded Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS operatives and ensure their detention and trial, which would be respected by the youth.
