#ENDSARS: Lagos State Judicial Panel Suspends Sitting Indefinitely

Published

on

The Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters has said it would be suspending its sitting until further notice, after Saturday’s session, even while it still has 27 working days to its October 19 deadline.

Chairman of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi, announced this at the resumed sitting of the panel on Saturday. She said “There are two reports that we are expected to work on; we are not close enough to any of them, we cannot continue with the sitting and end the assignment without concluding. So, we will not be sitting from today”.

Indicating that the panel needed some time to collate and evaluate petitions already heard so as to make findings and recommendations, Justice Doris said further: “We have to collate and evaluate petitions already heard so as to make findings and recommendations, even on the Lekki shooting. But as soon as we find ourselves in a comfortable situation, we will send hearing notices for cases that have been listed. Please bear with us, we cannot speculate on any further extension. We have to work towards completing the assignment as early as we can.
“This is without any prejudice to us coming back to conclude on part-heard cases. Dates will be communicated to petitioners who have petitions pending,” Okuwobi said.
