The governor promised to set up an implementation committee on the panel’s recommendations.
Submitting the report late Wednesday in Ilorin, the state capital, panel Chair Justice Tunde Garba (rtd) said that panel’s report was based on various petitions received, bordering on alleged police
brutality, unlawful arrests, extortion, violation of fundamental human rights, and impunity, the retired judge said.
“The report is in three volumes; volume one is the main report, volume two contains the petitions received and adopted by the panel while volume three contains the list of all the exhibits tendered and admitted during the panel’s proceedings
“The main report contains proceedings, our findings and recommendations on each of the 25 petitions received and treated holistically by the panel. It is therefore our hope that the recommendations therein if adopted by the government will wipe the tears and put a smile on the faces of all the victims of police brutality and even the serving and retired police officers inclusive,”
Justice Garba added.
He said if the government adopts the recommendations of the panel; it will help to support victims of identified cases of police brutality and also improve the living conditions of serving and retired police officers.
“I thank the committee for doing a very delicate work. You were able to bring your experience and expertise to bear on the difficult task. We understand from the size of the document you are submitting that a lot of work has gone into it. You needed more time which we acceded
AbdulRazaq commended the Police and the entire security agencies in Nigeria for their services to the nation, and urged them to continue to do their duties diligently and in line with the law.
He said: “We must thank the Police and other security agencies for their services to Nigeria for keeping us safe. We encourage them to do their work diligently. Some of the demands of #EndSARS are already being met by the president. Salaries and emoluments of the police are being looked into,” he said.
“We need to remain focus and maintain law and order to tame the current insecurity in the country. We need to live together peacefully for the progress of the country.”
