Yemi Osinbajo confirmed plans are now set in motion both on the federal and state level in order to stop police brutality and harassment.
The statement partly read:
“Dear Nigerians, I know that many of you are angry, and understandably so. We could’ve moved faster and for this we are sorry.
I fully understand how many young people feel, Many feel that we have been too silent and have simply not done enough.
“These feelings of frustration are justified, There are far too many people who have been brutalised at the hands of the police and this is unacceptable.
We must take responsibility for protecting young people, even sometimes from those who are paid to protect them.
“Over the past week, we have been following the protests, and I have had a number of discussions with key people in the administration that you deserve to be informed about. Transparency, after all, is a key tenet of government.
“Several meetings have been held with: the @SPLawan, @femigbaja, the Chief of Staff to @MuhammaduBuhari, Chairman of the @PoliceServiceC2, the IG of @PoliceNG(IGP), the Executive Secretary of @NHRCNigeria, and governors.
“We understand that you want to see action from us and I’m here to tell you that work is ongoing.
I chaired a meeting of 36 state governors and the Minister of the FCT (NEC), where we resolved to set up judicial panels of inquiry so we can see justice served, and fast.
“The reason being that only state governors, by law, can set up judicial inquiries in their states. The hearings will be public.
