Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has constituted a Judicial Panel of Inquiry to look into the illegal activities of some officers of the Nigeria Police Force in Ondo State.

The panel will also beam its scope on the cases of police brutality perpetrated particularly under the purview of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in the State.

The move by the Governor was coming on the heels of the federal government’s directive occasioned by the nationwide protests by youths against police brutality under the End SARS nationwide protests.

According to the State Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, the Judicial Panel of Inquiry has six months to conclude its assignment and submit its report.

The panel will be headed by Hon. Justice Salisu Adesola Sidiq (Rtd) who is a Rtd. High Court Judge, while Mrs. Banke Oloba and Ifeanyi Odili will serve on the panel as representatives of Civil Society Groups.

The members of the Panel of Inquiry will also be saddled with the responsibility to recommend compensation and other remedial measures.
