Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar says his heart is still broken over the killing of protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on October 20, 2020.

Mr Atiku, in a Twitter thread on Thursday, restated his position on the killing of peaceful protesters by the Nigeria Army and their police counterparts during the #EndSARS protests.

“The sad memory of what happened is what we cannot wish away,” he said.

The former vice president further stated that young people should be given the space and opportunity to express themselves within the provisions of the law.

“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.”

He also restated his commitment to police and justice reforms with the view to resolving police brutality and getting justice for victims.

“There’s still a compelling need for Police reforms incorporating State Police and justice for those who have suffered police brutality. I maintain the position expressed in this video broadcast on 20/10/20,” he said.
