The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, met with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Tuesday.

During the meeting, he presented a copy of the demands of youths protesting against police brutality and extortion in the country..



He explained that “the President restated his commitment to embark on a holistic reform of the entire Police Force.”

When asked what transpired during the meeting, Sanwo-Olu said, “The essence of the meeting is to pass on the clarion call of all our youths that are protesting in different parts of the country on the ENDSARS NOW. Mr. President graciously accepted the letter that was given to me by the youths to personally deliver to him. He graciously received the letter and we went through it very very briefly. I explained to him all the things that we are doing.

“I can tell you and all our youths out there that Mr. President has listened, your letter is documented, it has received attention and he has assured me that all of the things that you have said there he will see how he will begin to implement them almost immediately.”

Earlier, Sanwo-Olu appealed to the youths to suspend their protest.


He urged them to be decorous and peaceful while expressing their grievances against the excessive use of force by SARS.

The governor told the demonstrators that their protest was legitimate, but pleaded with them not to block the roads.
