#EndSARS: AbdulRazaq sets up panel in Kwara

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has named a 10-person judicial panel of investigation to look into the complaints of police brutality, human rights abuses and extra judicial killings by the #EndSARS protesters.

 The development follows a recommendation of the National Economic Council for each state to constitute a panel to receive and investigate complaints from the #EndSARS coalition, make recommendations to prosecute erring persons, and compensations for victims or their families, among other things.

According to a statement by the Governor’s spokesman Rafiu Ajakaye the panel is to be headed by retired Justice Tunde Garba.

 Other members are: retired AIG Issa Ojibara; Ronke Adeyemi (CSO representative); Hajia Fati Audu (community representative); Kauthar Adeyi (youth representative); Mrs Jumoke Olaoye (National Human Rights Commission);

Others are  Idris Gana (Ministry of Justice); Nafisat Musa Buge (youth representative); Bilikis Salaudeen (youth representative); and Hassan Yusuf Adio (CSO).

The statement says the panel would be inaugurated on Tuesday afternoon.
