News Investigators/ The United Nations has called on the Federal Government to implement the recommendation of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution set up to investigate issues surrounding the #EndSARS Protests of 2020.

UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon said in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, that the submission of the report of the panel was a welcome development.

The report released Tuesday in Lagos indicted the Nigerian Army and Police of brutalising and shooting resulting in maiming and deaths of defenceless citizens in a manner suggesting a massacre. It also made several recommendations.

Reacting in a statement, Mr Kallon said: “I welcome the submission to the Lagos State Governor, H.E. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, of the reports of the judicial panel on claims of brutality and shooting in the Lekki area of Lagos State, during the 2020 #EndSARS protests,” he said.

He noted that the submission of the findings of the judicial panel would accelerate the process of justice and accountability.

“I urge the government to implement the recommendations of the judicial panel of inquiry to rebuild trust and start the process of healing and reconciliation.” He added.
