We’ve Fully Met Demands Of EndSARS Protesters — Nigerian Government

The Federal Government on Tuesday said it has implement­ed all the demands presented to it by the EndSARS protesters in October 2020.

Minister for Police Affairs, Dr. Mohammed Maigari-Din­gyadi, made this known in Abuja, at the Public Dissemi­nation of the Post EndSARS/ Research and Training of Police Oversight Agencies on Oversight Mechanisms.

The event was organised by Cleen Foundation, with support from MacArthur Foundation.

“Without prejudice to the findings contained in your EndSARS Research Findings, let me assure this gathering and Nigerians in general.

“That the President Mu­hammadu Buhari-led admin­istration has fully implement­ed the demands presented by peaceful protesters in October 2020, which was unfortunately hijacked by unpatriotic ele­ments.

“It would be recalled that the government expeditiously approved the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, which was foremost among the demands of the protesters.

“The five demands of the protesters, otherwise known as the “five for five” demands, also included setting up of indepen­dent investigation, justice for victims of police infractions, and re-evaluation of disbanded SARS personnel.

“And an upward review of police emolument has been fully implemented by the gov­ernment towards emplacing permanent solutions to trust deficit between the police and the citizenry”, the minister said.
