Lagos judicial panel receives 210 petitions

The Lagos State judicial panel on restitution for victims of SARS related matters says it has received two hundred and ten petitions.

The panel, which had six months to come up with recommendations after hearing all matters, said by twenty-two December, it would stop accepting any petition and focus on hearing.

It also urged people intending to petition the Nigeria Police Force or the disbanded Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad to do so before twenty-two December, when they would stop accepting petitions.

Since the inauguration of the panel by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in October, the panel had been hearing cases of Police abuse, with mandate to thoroughly investigate all verifiable claims of abuses and fatalities arising from SARS engagement in the State.
