The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, twitted on his @jidesanwoolu handle to once again identify with the #CandleForSARSVictims hosted last night by the #EndSARS protesters.
Following a protest which has lasted for a week and three days, the protesters gathered around various areas of the Lagos metropolis to mourn the death of friends, loved ones, and family members who met their cruel end at the hands of SARS officials.
Sanwo-Olu stated that “I have seen powerful images and videos of the #CandleForSARSVictims vigils held across the country. It calls for very sober reflections”.
“Yesterday, the orderly room trial of the police officers involved in the surulere incident began”.
“Some of the victims attended and will testify before the panel next week. Justice will be served”.
“Thank you to the team actively following up and helping victims. There is so much more to be done and I will keep sharing the actions we are taking in line with my announcements” the governor promised.
At the different locations where the candlelight event is held, prayers were said after which the demonstrators sang the National Anthem in respect of the country.
