The Lagos State #EndSARS Judicial Panel on Police Brutality and Other Related Abuses has submitted its report to the state government one year after its inauguration. The report was submitted yesterday to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the Government House, Ikeja.
The panel submitted two sets of reports- a consolidated report on police brutality cases and another that covered an investigation into Lekki Toll Gate incident of October 20, 2020. Several names, including that of deceased people, injured, and missing have been listed as casualties of the Lekki Toll incident.
Sanwo-Olu, while receiving the report, said it is the beginning of the “difficult process of proper reconciliation and restitution.”
The governor, who commended members of the panel for the work done, said posterity would be kind to them. He added that the report would be submitted to the National Economic Council (NEC), and that “proper response” would be accorded to the recommendations.
“I am believing and trusting that this process would help us start the very difficult process of proper reconciliation, restitution and bringing together anyone that must have been one form or the other affected,” he said.
