The Lagos State governor, Babatunde Sanwo Olu has inaugurated an 8-man judicial panel of inquiry and restitution which will include 2 youth representative and a member of National human right commission in a bid to investigate police brutality in Lagos.
He also went ahead to say: “
I am on the side of the young people out there. I understand your pain and I know your concerns are legitimate.
I must reiterate that while we were able to immediately acquiesce to some of your demands, some will require time: we ask you to bear with us as we work on them.
I will like to renew my appeal to you to suspend the protests and create an atmosphere for the resolution of all pending demands.
I encourage everyone brutalized by the disbanded SARS including the families of those who have died to present their cases before this Panel.
The setting up of the Judicial Panel is a very important step in the journey to reforming the Police.
We urge all citizens of Lagos to partner with us in this journey. We appreciate and recognize the efforts of the youths which has made this necessary change inevitable.
Together, we will #EndPoliceBrutality and reform the Police #ForAGreaterLagos.”
