Allow implementation of planned Police reform – Governor Abiodun tells EndSARS Protesters.
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has appealed to the youths and #EndSARS demonstrators in the state to be civil in their conduct and support the planned reform of the Nigeria police.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Kunle Somorin, Governor Abiodun urged the youths not to allow the lofty idea behind the protest to be hijacked by hoodlums and those he described as self-serving people.
While urging the youths to be calm and peaceful, Governor Abiodun also enjoined the security agencies to always avoid the use of force in managing peaceful protests.
The Governor pointed out that the State would facilitate investigation into any act of brutality of citizens by law enforcement agencies and hold any erring law enforcement officer accountable.
He gave the assurance that his administration would maintain keen interest in the planned police reform towards ensuring that the Nigeria Police operated within the ambits of the law.
