#EndSARS protesters on Monday visited the headquarters of Vintage Press Limited, publishers of The Nation Newspaper in Lagos.
They came with a message for President Muhammadu Buhari and police authorities: end Police brutality now.
They said the alleged extortions and harassment of youths by SARS operatives must end immediately.
The protesters, comprising mainly youths, were addressed by Online Editor of The Nation, Mr. Sunday Oguntola, who appreciated their peaceful action.
He said: “Good afternoon, I appreciate you for the peaceful nature of this protest. Let me say that the Nation Newspaper is with you.
“We hear your cries, we are part of you, we are also Nigerians, and we are also affected. Many of us have been stopped by the police in the past, brutalised and extorted by the police.
“We have been covering this protest across the nation. If you go to our website, you will see that we are covering this protest.
“We need to make sure that the police operate within the armbit of the law. We will make sure that we amplify your voices.
” We will make sure that we tell the relevant authorities that the police should operate within confines of the law, that not all Nigerians youths are yahoo boys, that the facts that you are on dreadlocks doesn’t make you a yahoo boy. Thank you so much for coming.”
