Implement Lagos #EndSARS panel report, UN tells FG, LASG
Reactions calling for full implementation have trailed the recommendations of the Lagos State panel of enquiry which indicted the Nigerian Army and the police for killing peaceful protesters on October 20, 2020 during last year’s #EndSARS protest at Lekki tollgate.
The UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Edward Kallon in his reaction welcomed the submission of the panel’s report in a statement by a UN National Information Officer, Oluseyi Soremekun.
He noted that the submission of the findings of the judicial panel would accelerate the process of justice and accountability.
“I welcome the submission to the Lagos State Governor, H.E. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, of the reports of the judicial panel on claims of brutality and shooting in the Lekki area of Lagos State, during the 2020 EndSARS protests.
“I urge the government to implement the recommendations of the judicial panel of inquiry to rebuild trust and start the process of healing and reconciliation,” the statement added.
