A Network of young Nigerians promoting good governance and citizen engagement, Enough is Enough (EiE), has released a set of observations from the Judicial Panel of Inquiry around the country.

The organisation noted that the Government has continued to undermine Judicial panels.

“Government has continued to demonstrate that its more interested in clamping down on fundamental rights, rather than addressing the critical issues of citizen engagement and police reform, which undermines the Judicial Panels.

“So far, 28.6% of witnesses that have made submissions are victims of Police brutality, 21.4% are family members of the victims.

“Anambra State leads in the number of petitions submitted.

The #EndSars Judicial Panel of Inquiry is composed of 263 panel members with 60 women (22.8%) and 48 youths (18.6%).
