The National Human Rights Commission says all the officers who directed and unleashed the use of live ammunition on peaceful protesters must be held accountable.
The Executive Secretary of the commission, Mr. Tony Ojukwu stated this in Abuja while inaugurating the members of the Independent panel of investigation into the allegations of human rights violations against SARS.
Mr. Ojukwu expressed shock and disappointment over the use of live bullets against peaceful protesters.
He said innocent members of the public who lost their properties due to the activities of hoodlums must be compensated because the protesters were not given protection by the law enforcement agents.
Mr. Ojukwu also called for the arrest and prosecution of the hoodlums who infiltrated the protests and attacked police officers and destroyed properties of members of the public.
