ENDSARS: LASG Calls For Calm Over Leaked Panel’s Report
The Lagos State Government has calmed for calm after controversy greeted the leaked report of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters.
The panel submitted its report to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday.
In a 309-page report, the panel indicted the Nigerian Army and police for complicity in the shooting of #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate on October 20 last year.
In a statement by Lagos Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, the state government said it has good intention for setting up the panel.
The statement read, “The Lagos State Government has noted the various reactions that have followed the submission of the report of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters. There have been arguments in the public space over the report.
“There is need for us to restrain ourselves from nullifying the good intentions of the government in setting up this Panel, which was well encouraged to do its job – a fact that was acknowledged by the Panel.
