On Wednesday, The Cross River State Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality and other related offenses held its inaugural sitting, and 39 petitions were received.

The Chairman of the panel, Justice Michael Edem, at the sitting, urged the witnesses and victims to present clear evidence devoid of falsehood to have a true reflection of the various incidences that had occurred over the years.

He assured that the panel would display a high level of transparency in implementing all recommendations for justice to be served to the victims through the nation’s law’s confinement.

In October, the panel was inaugurated by the State Governor, Ben Ayade, to look into the cases of police brutality and high handedness of SARS operatives, which gave rise to the #ENDSARS protest across the country.

With 39 petitions received so far, the panel will reconstitute in the coming days to accommodate members of the Nigerian Police Force who are defendants.

However, lawyers on the panel noted that there is a need for some observation raised to be tackled to ensure that the sitting will not be in futility.
