Again, Lagos #EndSARS judicial panel gets tenure extension


The Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters has again received a tenure extension of three months.

The Chairman of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi, stated this while hearing petitions on Friday

WuzupNigeria had reported that the Lagos State judicial panel was inaugurated by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on October 27, 2020.

A period of six-month was meant for the panel to last in response to the government acceding to the five-for-five demands of the #EndSARS protesters with a mandate to look into abuses by security agencies and the now-disbanded SARS unit of the Nigeria police force and to make recommendations to the authorities for restitution to victims of abuses.
