#EndSARS: Governors Issue Fresh Directive To IGP, Says SWAT Timing Wrong

Governors of the 36 states of Nigeria has ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to arrest and prosecute policemen responsible for attacks and killing of #EndSARS protesters.

The 36 state governors made this known in a communique by Governor Kayode Fayemi, chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), issued at the end of a teleconference meeting held on Thursday.

The governors also stated that Nigerians who have been affected by police brutality or other actions should be compensated

They berated IGP Adamu for not consulting widely before dissolving SARS, adding that despite the excesses of the unit, SARS assisted in tackling insecurity, particularly in the north.

“Governors were unequivocal that all police officers who participated in the abuse or actions that might have led to injury or the death of innocent citizens must be fished out and brought to book while other Nigerians who have been adversely affected by police brutality or other actions that were injurious to them or their loved ones, should be compensated.
