According to report reaching oyogist.com, Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday directed the Lagos State Scholarship Board to award scholarships to the children of police officers lynched during the violence that trailed the #EndSARS protest.
Sanwo-Olu said his visit was to boost the morale of the cops following the demoralizing event.
The governor said, “The Commissioner of Police has come forward with many requests, which we will need to address to boost the morale of officers after last week’s event. As your governor, I have come here to take full responsibility for the loss you have suffered in terms of logistics. From tomorrow (Thursday), we will start implementing these requests.
“Through the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, we will be replacing the operational police vehicles burnt in the violence. We have bigger plans for all the police stations burnt down. We will look for the funds and build befitting stations that will set the standard of what police stations should be.
“The most important request is to offer scholarships to the children of officers that died. I have directed the Lagos State Scholarship Board under the Special Adviser on Education to award scholarships to the children of the slain officers immediately.”
