Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu  on Tuesday said his government has earmarked N200 million as compensation for families of victims of #EndSARS protest in the state.

The governor addressed thousands of #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

The protesters had occupied the entrance to the Lagos State House of Assembly to demand that SARS must go.

The governor further promised to convey the request of the protesters to President Muhammadu Buhari some of which are increment in police salary as well as Justice for those killed by the police during the protest.

Sanwo-Olu had also addressed the protesters who thronged the Lekki Toll Gate on Monday to protest.

All across Lagos on Tuesday, the #EndSARS protest continues as protesters blocked the roads and make life unbearable for motorists.

But the protesters in Alausa on Tuesday did not block the road, but ensured that there is free-flow of traffic in the area, unlike Monday when the Alausa vicinity was shutdown by protesters.

  1. Mr. Governor, stop panicking and naïve to give out Lagos money any how to victims of SARS as you do not know what they did before SARS arrested them.

    Secondly most the names you read out are majorly Igbo people and of what reason are you going to give out money to them when their Governors in the East are not doing anything for them.

    These money can be used to but drugs for bout 200 – locations of Primary Health Centres in Lagos to take care of the poor people that patronize these PHC or renovate over 20 – Primary Schools or construct over 10 – streets in the city of Lagos for the benefit of all. Remember SARS is under Federal government and let the victims of SARS go to Federal government as Buhari had promised to investigate and compensate victims of SARS.

    Stop the pilfering of scarce Lagos resources please.
