Civil Rights activist and former Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani has suggested five ways of solving the End SARS challenge for the Nigerian government, tasking it to begin implementation immediately.
He, however, said, protesters should further stop protesting, given the deadly turn the campaign has taken.
In a statement issued on Friday, the former lawmaker maintained that victims of attack must also be compensated.
“Its time to suspend the End SARS protest and end the looting and arson by hoodlums and gangsters.
“The FG should raise a panel to dialogue with the influential leaders of the protests and articulate the demands of the youths for the purposes of implementation.
“The Federal Government should set up machinery for compensating victims of the violence and those who were extrajudicially killed.
“End SARS protests is a justified struggle against police brutality and bad governance. It is a new generation challenge to the failures of the Governments at all levels and the overall political class, political establishment and the political elites.
“End SARS protests was a message and a lesson to those in political authority and control of levers of power that there’s a limit to people’s patience and tolerance for oppression”, he concluded.
