{PRESS RELEASE}
EndSARS: CLO Faults Panel of Inquiry

The Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO), Akwa Ibom State Branch has faulted the EndSARS Panel of Investigation constituted by the Akwa Ibom State Government to investigate incidences of Police brutality and infractions of the rights of Nigerians in Akwa Ibom State for submitting its Report to the State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, without making public its recommendations.

CLO, in a press release dated Thursday, 29th July, 2021, and signed by its State Chairman, Otuekong Franklyn Isong and State Secretary, Comrade (Barr.) Christopher Ekpo, noted that the manner in which the EndSARS Panel shrouded its recommendations in secrecy leaves room for the suppression of the recommendations.

CLO stated that it is worried given the unsavoury manner in which the current state administration suppressed the recommendations and white paper of the 2017 Reigners Bible Church Panel of Inquiry.

While commending the Chairman and members of the Justice Ifiok Ukana EndSARS Panel for their dedication and commitment, CLO, calls on the Panel to clear the haze by making public its recommendations.
