The Lagos State Government has responded to the outpouring of emotion and outrage in the aftermath of the Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters’ report.
On Monday, the Chairman, retired Justice Doris Okuwobi, presented the findings and recommendations to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Gbenga Omotoso, the Information Commissioner, issued a message Wednesday night urging people to be careful with their remarks.
Omotoso was referring to the debates and controversies surrounding the Army’s invasion and shooting at the Lekki toll gate on October 20, 2020.
According to the official, everyone must refrain from undermining the government’s good objectives.

“In accordance with the Tribunal of Inquiry Law 2015, a committee has been set up to bring up a White Paper on the report to determine the next line of action.
“At the appropriate time, the Government will make known its views on all the issues raised by the Panel through the release of a White Paper”, the statement added.
Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) is leading the four-man team to produce the White Paper in two weeks.
