Nigeria's Vice President - Prof.Yemi Osinbajo,state governors and federal government representatives making up the National economic council (NEC) have reached the decision that all indicted police officers by the Endsars panels set up in various states across the country will be prosecuted.

This decision was arrived after at the NEC meeting held on October 15,where the body vowed to ensure that victims of police brutality are compensated according to the recommendations of the Endsars panels.

It said, "Where the violation by the victims do not constitute criminal liabilities,they urged the Nigeria police force to take disciplinary action on the indicted officers in line with the provisions of the police Act 2020.

The body further said the federal and state governments had since the Endsars protests last year (2020) addressed the protester's grievances by the disbanding of SARS,broaden police reforms and established judicial panels of inquiries to investigate the allegations of human rights violations by members of the Nigeria police force and other security agencies.

Would this measure put an end to police and other security agencies's brutality against citizens?
