Ahmad Lawan, Senate President, has said the National Assembly will ensure justice for victims of brutality of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a disbanded unit of the police force.

Lawan also assured that the lawmakers of the upper chamber will ensure the demands of the ENDSARS protesters are met.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Senate President on Monday.

“I want to seize this opportunity to reassure our youths that the national assembly will collaborate with the executive to ensure justice for victims of misconduct and rights abuses by personnel of the disbanded special anti-robbery squad of the Nigeria Police,” Lawan noted.

“In the same vein, to discourage impunity, we will insist that the perpetrators of the alleged abuses be prosecuted and sanctioned as appropriate.

“As we seek a path out of this regrettable crisis, my heart goes out to the victims of the reprehensible violence and criminality witnessed in the last few days in many parts of the country.

“I send my condolences to the families of our security and law enforcement agents who have made the Supreme sacrifices in the course of their service to their fatherland.

“I also call for a thorough investigation of every criminal act that we have witnessed in the past few weeks with a view to bringing to justice all those elements who have so callously destroyed public and private property.

“Now that the mindless carnage has distorted the purpose of the protests, I urge the youths to join hands with the authorities in bringing an urgent cessation to the violence.

“While still grappling with the havoc of COVID-19, the country can ill afford yet another epidemic that has now appeared in the form of the lawlessness that is going on.

“I thank all Nigerian leaders and other well-meaning Nigerians for their interventions towards restoring peace and order after the unfortunate degeneration of the protest into chaos and brigandage in many parts of the country.”
