He recently revealed this while receiving the final report of the State Judicial Panel of Inquiry into an allegation of Human Rights Violation Against Police Officers including Officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and other Persons.
According to him, he hopes that the steps taken to remedy the situation would ameliorate what these victims have suffered psychologically and physically.
He added that he can guarantee his government will do everything to implement the decisions of the panel to the letter.
His words, “Our prompt payment of compensations to these victims was borne out of our desire to ensure that they are given the opportunity to immediately begin to rebuild their lives. The cases of additional persons recommended for the award of compensation will also be given the same speedy consideration.”
“Concerning the need for more visibility in public spaces, I am today pleased to announce the establishment of a Citizens Complaints Centre in the newly completed Oja-oba facility. This center, when fully functional, will provide an additional place for citizens to report their complaints and grievances that will result in immediate and appropriate government response.”
