The independent investigative panel on human rights violations by the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad sitting in Abuja has ordered the police to pay the sum of two million naira judgment debt to Dr. Martins Iwuanyanwu for violating his right to access to justice.

At the resumed sitting of the panel on Monday, Justice Suleiman Galadima ordered the police to pay the money immediately based on the judgment of a High Court delivered on July 10, 2020 which the police are yet to appeal against.

The complainant claimed he was denied access to justice and effective remedy by the defunct sars and he obtained a judgment of the court which the police is yet to obey.

“The complainant deserves immediate payment. It is therefore ordered that he should be settled immediately without further delay,” Justice Galadima ruled.
