The Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has Pleaded with its Executive Arm to Impermanent Five Point Demands of #EndSARS protesters.

The senate Spokesman, Dr Ajibola Bashiru, who disclosed this to Journalists in Abuja on Friday, says the executive should Endeavour to do the needful in other that the protest is put to an end!

Although the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, scrapped the police unit last Sunday and announced a replacement, the protesters want the police authorities to carry out psychological evaluation and re-training of all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.

They demand the release of all arrested protesters, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families. They also want increased salaries for police officers as well as the establishment of an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct.

The government and some business leaders had tried to persuade the youths to leave the streets but the protesters have insisted that until the government implements their demands, the demonstrations would continue.
