EndSARS: Gov Sanwo-Olu vows to release Lagos judicial panel report


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has said the final report of the EndSARS Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution would be made to the public.

The governor guaranteed that his administration would not make an attempt to cover up the findings and recommendations.

Recall that the judicial panel was formed after the EndSARS protest in 2020.

Sanwo-Olu said the report would be helpful in strengthening true reconciliation and preventing the re-occurrence of the civil unrest.

The governor explained that the panel was set up to probe allegations of rights abuse against the police and determine the cause of coordinated attacks on Lagos.

“We do not know the content of the report, but we want to say publicly that, upon the handover of the report, we will be making it public.

“We will not cover up anything. This is not who we are and that is not what our government stands for. We will make full disclosure of recommendations”, Sanwo-Olu said.

The judicial panel, chaired by Justice Doris Okuwobi, concluded its sittings on Monday, one year after it was constituted.

The members include retired DIG Taiwo Lakanu (Police), Lucas Koyejo (National Human Rights Commission), Segun Awosanya (Segalink) and Oluwatoyin Odusanya (Citizens Right).

Others are Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN), Patience Udoh (Civil society), Rinuola Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi (Youths reps). Oduala stepped down in February, alleging “cover-up”.
