Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has assured that the National Assembly will get justice for victims of police brutality.
Lawan said the legislature will collaborate with the executive to ensure that rights abuses by personnel of the disbanded Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are probed.
The lawmaker, in a statement, noted that the government has shown commitment to implement the five-point demands of the End SARS protesters.
He, however, condemned the arson, violence and looting in several parts of the country.
”As we seek a path out of this regrettable crisis, my heart goes out to the victims of the reprehensible violence and criminality witnessed in the last few days in many parts of the country.
“Now that the mindless carnage has distorted the purpose of the protests, I urge the youths to join hands with the authorities in bringing an urgent cessation to the violence.
“I call on our patriotic youths to leave the streets as Government has heard their voices and is addressing their grievances. This is also necessary to avoid unwittingly continuing to provide covers for the criminals and fifth columnists in our midst.
As regards those criminal elements unleashing terror on our cities under the guise of the protest, I urge the security agencies to forthwith but with utmost restraint, restore law and order across the country and bring the criminals to justice.”
Lawan sent condolences to the families of fallen law enforcement agents and civilians.
He called for a thorough investigation of criminal acts witnessed in the past two weeks.
