#EndSARS: Sanwo-Olu Releases Names of Police Officers under Prosecution in Lagos

In a bid to restore calm in the state, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has released the names of police officers being prosecuted for various human rights violations across the State.

He made this move known via his Twitter handle on Friday morning.
