It was based on these allegations that the Lagos State government set up a panel to look into this incident and make a report.

The panel which was inaugurated on 19th October, 2020, to investigate the complains of police brutality in the state was later mandated to extend its investigation to the incident at the Lekki Tollgate on 20th October, 2020.

The Lagos State governor, on the 21st October, 2021, had vowed to make the report of the Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses report public.

Now that the Endsars panel has submitted the report, it is the governor's best opportunity to buy back the trust of the Nigerian youths by making the report public.

The governor has a chance to endear himself in the hearts of the youths if he keeps to his promise and also implement the recommendations made by the panel.

According to the Endsars Panel, members of the panel were given the freedom to carry out their investigations without intimidation and they worked based on their conscience and common convictions.

The governor deserves commendations for this, he should not stop at this but should also make the report public.

Benefits of Making the Endsars Panel Report Public
