Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said the candlelight procession for SARS victims which held Friday night across the country calls for sober reflections.

#EndSARS protesters held the vigil in honour of all those who have been killed by operatives of the unit over the years.

Sanwo-Olu in a statement on his official Twitter handle said there was so much to be done in getting justice for victims of police brutality, adding that he would keep the public updated on actions taken.

He wrote; “I have seen powerful images and videos of the #CandleForSARSVictims vigils held across the country. It calls for very sober reflections”.

He said the orderly room trial of the police officers involved in the killing of protesters last Monday had commenced.

At the different locations across the country where the candlelight event held, prayers were offered for the repose of their souls after which the demonstrators sang the National Anthem.
