The Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on Thursday joined a crowd of #EndSARS Protesters as they marched to the police headquarters in Ilorin, Kwara State capital.
AbdulRazaq marched with the youths after addressing them and assuring them of his support.
He also asked for the list of victims of Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) brutality in the state.
The protesters had earlier stormed the government secretariat, blocked the entrance and insisted on seeing the governor to address them.
In his address, the governor said efforts are in place to meet the demands of the protesters.
“However you look at it, we are all victims. I have since joined the protest. Some of you may notice online that I joined a Zoom meeting on Monday with Hajia Aisha Yesufu, Aliko Dangote, Wizkid and others to arrive at a resolution on this protest.
“It was part of this that led to the five-point agenda which is being implemented now by the federal government. The President is definitely listening to the complaints,” AbdulRazaq said.
