The demands, according to him include the release of the protesters, justice for all victims of police brutality, among others.

He said: “Our five demands include the immediate release of all arrested protesters. We thank God everybody was released in Abuja yesterday, there are still some people arrested in Lagos.

“Secondly, they want justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families. Out of everything, this is the most important because if there is reform, you cannot change a life that has been lost.

“Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconducts within 10 days. It is impossible to do anything within 10 days, but it is something that should be looked at,” he said.

Davido equally for a psychological evaluation of all officers of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) before redeployment, stressing that the training and retraining of police personnel are important.
