The Nigerian Senate has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the nation as #EndSARS protests heighten across the country.
Their call is in a bid to douse the tension over youths protesting against the atrocities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Police.
The resolution was reached after a motion moved Senator Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South) and co-sponsored by all Senators on the ongoing nationwide protests now believed to have been hijacked by extraneous forces to cause mayhem.
The Senate also appealed to the #EndSARS protesters to quit their protests to enable the federal government to commence action in meeting their demands.
The lawmakers also called on the Nigeria Police to protect the protesters from attacks from persons believed to be politically sponsored thugs.
