The state government said on Monday that a judicial panel investigating accusations of police brutality in Lagos State has delivered its findings.
The panel’s conclusions were presented to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu according to AFP.
The gunshot in the Lekki region of Lagos State during last year’s EndSARS protests was the subject of one of the reports, while charges of police brutality was the subject of the other.
The Nigerian army denied firing live shots at protestors, claiming that only blanks were used.
The protests began as a call to abolish the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a police unit suspected of extortion, torture, and extrajudicial executions.
However, the demonstrations developed into a larger fight against terrible governance.
The governor’s administration did not release the report’s contents, but the panel’s chairwoman, Justice Doris Okuwobi, said the panel evaluated 186 petitions out of 252 received.
Governor Sanwo-Olu promised a “appropriate reaction” to the panel’s findings, promising to release a “white paper” within the next two weeks.
“This process will help us start the very difficult process of proper reconciliation, restitution, bringing together of anyone… affected,” Sanwo-Olu said.
Activists and protesting youngsters organized memorial protests in Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, last month, under tight police surveillance.
