#End SARS: Sanwo-Olu Sends Strong Message To Buhari




Governor Sanwo-Olu has sent a strong message to President Muhammadu Buhari on the dissolution of SARS and reformation of the Police.


Jameela News reports that the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised President Buhari to regularly fund the security operatives.

The Lagos State Governor in a statement released on micro-blogging site, Twitter, urged President Buhari to take a cue from Lagos State RRS.


According to Sanwo-Olu, it is the constant funding from the Lagos State Security Trust Fund and the LASG that has made the RRS the “definition of friendly police”.

He tweeted: “A week ago, I spoke to the IGP and there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes.

“We thank the FG for listening to the voice of the people via peaceful but powerful protests showing the people’s commitment to protecting each other irrespective of gender or tribe.


“It is an undeniable fact that The Police Force needs strong and enduring reforms. A good example of a reformed unit is the Lagos RRS.

“With constant funding from the Lagos State Security Trust Fund and the LASG, the RRS is the definition of friendly police.

“They have not nicknamed The Good Guys for nothing. They help to make our lives easier in many ways. This shows it is possible to reform the police. A more intelligent and empathetic force is needed.

“I thank the CP Hakeem Odumosu for ensuring that the Police in Lagos conducted itself properly during the protests. There is so much more to be done but we press forward in the bid to make our state safer. Lagos, I’m here. Let’s do this. Whatever it takes to make you feel safer.”

Jameela News understands that the Governor of Lagos State made this statement after the citizens of Nigeria flooded the streets in various parts of the country to protest the police brutality perpetrated by the Special Anti-Robbery Squads popularly known as SARS.
