The Nigeria Governors Forum on Monday called for a judicial commission of inquiry to review cases of police brutality, especially by operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad across the country.

The governors appealed to #EndSARS protesters to end the protests to prevent hoodlums from hijacking it.

This was contained in a communique issued by NGF after the 20th emergency teleconference meeting held on Sunday.

In the communique, which was signed by the NGF Chairman, Kayode Fayemi, said the governors deliberated extensively on the nationwide protests, riots, and demonstrations.

He said the “Governors thereafter Resolved to: Activate a Judicial Panel of Enquiry to receive all cases of police brutality by officers of the disbanded SARS Unit. Each State is also expected to kickstart a compensation mechanism for all
victims.
