Lagos State Speaker urges Nigerians to ‘remain calm’, wait for EndSARS white paper




As the controversy surrounding the leaked panel report on the #EndSARS protest continues, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly Mudashiru Obasa has urged Nigerians to be calm and wait for the white paper of the EndSARS Panel report before passing judgement.

The Speaker made the remark on Wednesday during Gov Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s presentation of the N1.388 trillion budget proposal for 2022 to the Lagos State House of Assembly.

“I will plead with Lagosians and Nigerians as a whole that, while we await the white paper of the EndSARS Panel report, people should remain calm and not rush to judgment,” he said.

He assured that justice would be served based on the report’s findings, as justice is the foundation of any democratic government.

“Let’s not forget that Lagos has never been a police state, and it will not start now. Our state has always been a free state for all. We have absolute faith and confidence in our governor that he will not descend so low to incite violence against any member of the panel irrespective of the decision or interest of the members of the panel,” he said.

Moreover, he also praised the seven-member judicial panel of inquiry, led by retired Justice Doris Okuwobi, for probing incidents of cruelty and human rights breaches perpetrated by operatives of the state’s defunct special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
