NEC set to review reports of state panels on EndSARS


The National Executive Council is set to review reports of the state Judicial panels of inquiry on EndSARS.

This is coming at a time judicial panels established by state governors to resolve issues of police brutality and related concerns across the country conclude their assignments.

The decision to review the reports of the panels was among the resolutions made at NEC’s virtual meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement titled, ‘NEC now receiving reports from state judicial panels on EndSARS.’

Recall that following the nationwide protests against police brutality and the consequent disbandment of the Police SARS unit, the judicial panels were convoked to address pending complaints of human rights abuse in the police force.

The statement read in part “The Vice President at today’s meeting announced that a special session of NEC will soon be convened to consider all the reports that are ready from the judicial panels set up late last year to address the concerns of the Nigerian people on police brutality allegations and other related issues.

“That meeting would also consider the implementation of the reports including remedies, redress and compensations.”
