Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar says he is still disappointed and angry over the Lekki Tollgate attack that occurred on this day two years ago.
Atiku, in a statement he personally signed insisted that he stands in solidarity with the family of the victims.
”Two years ago, on this day, I shared a statement of sincere disappointment, anger, condemnation and pain. Two years after, that position has not changed.
”The sad memory of what happened is what we cannot wish away. There’s still a compelling need for Police reforms incorporating State Police and justice for those who have suffered police brutality.”
Referring to the video he shared during the EndSARS, Atiku said: “I maintain the position expressed in this video broadcast on 20/10/20. Our children MUST be heard and provided with spaces to express themselves within the ambit of the law and given opportunities too.
“My heart is still shattered for the families who lost loved ones during the #endsars demonstration. I stand with all families still grieving from their loss.”
He also demanded further reforms of the Police and Creation of State Police.
Recall that the attack on protesters at Lekki Toll Gate Area remains a subject of debate as the government has continued to deny it while international agencies insist there were killings that night.
