Kwara State Governor, Mall. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has asked the #EndSARS Protesters in Ilorin to Protest Peacefully.
Gov. AbdulRazaq stated this during a visit to the victim of the violent attack on #EndSARS protesters in the Challenge area of Ilorin.
AbdulRazaq Who visited the victim alongside ace musician Yusuf Olusola, known as CDQ, and a few other protesters condemned the violent attack and appealed for calm while the federal government and various state governments address their grievances.
The Kwara Governor said : We will foot the bills of the injured and we have asked the Police to investigate the attack and anybody involved should be brought to book. You would recall that protest started in Ilorin last Monday and they (protesters) have been coming here since then. I even led them to the Police headquarters on Thursday. So, we welcome peaceful protesters. Not a single person has been touched, molested or harmed since Monday. We were shocked today to see online that members of your team were harassed and attacked.
“What we asked for is peaceful expression of your demands. And that was what we were happy with since Monday.
“I urge all of you to protest peacefully. Protest for your right peacefully and the government will meet your demands peacefully. We have seen five-for-five and the federal government is gradually meeting them. Not everything will be addressed in a day. But over a period of time, the federal government will meet them as the Police is under the federal government.”Abdulrazaq Added.
