• December 5, 2021

The Lagos State Government has announced the release of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry on police brutality and related matters on its website.

The online version of the reports of the panel which probed the shooting incident of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate were uploaded to the state’s justice ministry website.

“Members of the public can view and download the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the documents on the website of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice – https://lagosstatemoj.org/official-documents/,” Attorney General Moyosore Onigbanjo Sunday said in a statement.

The Lagos #EndSARS panel submitted its reports to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on November 15.

Mr Onigbanjo, who is also the state’s Commissioner for Justice, said that the reports are entitled ”Report of Lekki Incident Investigation on 20th October 2021” and ”Consolidated Report on General Police Brutality”.

He advised the public to write to his office for further enquiries.

“’Further inquiries should be directed to the Office of the Hon. Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice through info@lagosstatemoj.org.,” Mr Onigbanjo said. 

Since the submission of the panel report, controversies have arisen due to the government’s refusal to accept the panel’s stance that unarmed protesters were killed by soldiers it called in to quell demonstrations.
