The Nigeria Governors’ Forum has appealed to Endsars protesters to call off their nationwide protests.

The forum made the call in a communiqué issued by its Chairman and Ekiti State Governor Mr Kayode Fayemi, in Abuja on Monday after its 20th emergency meeting.

The forum said that it deliberated extensively on the nationwide protests and issues relating to the development.

The governors condemned the attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun by armed youths while the governor was addressing protesters in Osogbo.

They told the protesters to dialogue with government at both national and state levels to ensure that the protests were not taken over by hoodlums, who were instigating breakdown in law and order nationwide.

The governors resolved to activate a judicial panel of inquiry to receive all cases of police brutality by officers of the disbanded SARS unit.

The forum resolved to endorse the call by demonstrators for improved governance, predicated on an enforcement regime that takes into cognisance the fundamental human rights and liberties of all citizens in the country.

The NGF disclosed that the body had also resolved to act on every demand made by the EndSARS protesters.
