The Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has praised the efforts of Nigerian youths who came out en masse to protest against the Special Anti-robbery Squad of the Nigeria police.
The governor hailed the good conduct of the youths who participated in the peaceful public demonstration in Lagos and added that their voices have been heard very clearly.

The dissolution of the SARS outfit by Inspector-General of police is an indication that the voice of the protesters had been heard by the authorities. He urged the youth to continue to engage the leadership on reforms required to make the police force work better.
