Amidst the ongoing nationwide #EndSARS protest, the Senate on Tuesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation without further delay.
Nigerians, especially the young people have poured out to the streets for about two weeks in protest against police brutality and bad governance.
In its emergency session on Tuesday, the Senate also directed the police to offer protection to the #EndSARS protesters to prevent hoodlums from hijacking their genuine action.
The Senate decision was sequel to a point of order by Senator Biodun Olujimi, titled, “#EndSARS: The need for a comprehensive reform”
The federal lawmakers urged the protesters to stop their agitation on the streets while the Federal Government addresses their demands.
They also urged Buhari to immediately set up a judicial panel of enquiry made up of eminent Nigerians that would be respected by the youths to identify the notorious SARS operatives and ensure their arrest and prosecution
