Lagos Government speaks on reactions to #EndSARS panel report

The Lagos State government in its first reaction to the viral report of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters, which leaked on Monday, said yesterday that it had noted the various reactions that have followed the submission of the report.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, the state government said: “There have been arguments in the public space over the report. There is a need for us to restrain ourselves from nullifying the good intentions of the government in setting up this panel, which was well encouraged to do its job, a fact that was acknowledged by the panel.

“In accordance with the Tribunal of Inquiry Law 2015, a committee has been set up to bring up a White Paper on the report to determine the next line of action. At the appropriate time, the government will make known its views on all the issues raised by the panel through the release of a White Paper.”
