Lagos State Panel of Judicial Inquiry set up to address the issue of police brutality has suspended its sitting for one week due to the absence of the youth representatives.
The youth representatives on Saturday boycotted the Lagos Judicial Panel session after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) obtained a court order to freeze the bank accounts of 20 #EndSARS promoters.
A youth member of the panel, Oluwarinu Oduala, was among those whose accounts were ordered to be frozen for the next 90 days subject to renewal.
The apex bank did not say what the #EndSARS campaigners did against the law to attract freezing of their bank accounts till January 2020.
The Panel on its official Twitter page on Saturday said the sitting was adjourned to 14th of November due to lack of quorum.
“We announce the adjournment of the sitting for a week due to lack of quorum.
“Our sitting never commenced until the youth representatives were sworn in & definitely cannot proceed in their absence due to recent developments,” the tweet added.
KanyiDaily had reported that the Judicial Panel of Inquiry was set up by the Lagos State Government, to probe the Lekki toll gate shootings and several complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
