Ogun State Judicial Panel of Investigation on Police Brutality, Human Rights Violations and Extra Judicial Killings has ended its sitting after treating fifty-eight petitions out of the submitted one hundred and six.

The chairman of the panel, Justice Solomon Olugbemi made this known at the Magistrate Court 1, Isabo, Abeokuta while speaking with newsmen.

He stated that during the six months exercise, the panel received one hundred and six petitions out of which fifty-eight were treated while forty-eight were withdrawn, rejected or abandoned.

Justice Olugbemi said some petitions were wholly abandoned, some abandoned half-way by the petitioners while some were rejected because the petitions were not in line with the terms of reference of the panel.

He assured that the panel’s report was ready for submission to the government.

The panel was inaugurated on nineteenth of October last year by Governor Dapo Abiodun and was given a six month period to receive and investigate petitions from members of the public whose human rights have been violated and abused by security personnel within the state and also to make appropriate recommendations to government.
