Sanwo OLU posted on Instagram where he said;
I joined the #SARSMUSTEND protesters in Alausa and received a letter of their demands and once again I reiterated my support.
I am now on my way to Abuja to meet with H.E President Muhammed Buhari and the goal of the conversation is clear.
Tangible next steps to #EndPoliceBrutality
We are also immediately setting up a trust fund to compensate the families of police brutality in Lagos state even though no amount of money can reduce their pain. The trust fund will be supervised by the Civil Society Organization who will be appointed transparently by members of the public.
Meanwhile, the governor had earlier addressed the protesters where he promised to convey their message to the president. He has posted a picture of him boarding a plane to Abuja.
