EndSARS report: US awaits Lagos, FG response

The US has applauded the conclusion of investigations by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry into restitution for victims of SARS-related abuses and other matters.

According to a statement by the American embassy in Abuja, the US is looking forward to the Lagos State government’s response “as part of a process that represents an important mechanism of accountability regarding the #EndSARS protests and the events that occurred near the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.”

It observed that those events resulted in serious allegations against some members of the security forces, saying that the US government looked forward to the State and federal governments taking appropriate measures to address those alleged abuses as well as the victims’ and their families’ grievances.
