Judicial Panel on #ENDSARS: Ajeromi/ Ifelodun residents hopeful

As the judicial panel of inquiry, set up by the Lagos State government
to probe into the activities of the defunct Special Anti Robbery
Squad, SARS, and the Lekki Shooting, kicks off its investigation
today, the people of Ajeromi/Ifelodun, are hopeful that the panel will
do a thorough job.

Secretariat and the Layeni Police Division in Ifelodun LCDA, and other private
properties by hoodlums last week, after Governor Babajide Sanwa- Olu,
announced a curfew. The announcement of the curfew by the governor
followed the burning down of the Orile Iganmu Police Station and the
looting of the armory.

However, hoodlums took advantage of the curfew and went on looting
spree in various other parts of Lagos.

Governor Sanwo Olu, when he paid a visit to both Ajeromi and Ifelodun
Councils respectively for the on spot assessment of the damages told
the people of Ajeromi/Ifelodun that he would do everything possible to
restore peace.

 Sanwo-Olu, who inspected the carcasses of burnt vehicles, numbering about
86 and looted offices and buildings in the secretariat, expressed
dismay at the actions of the vandals and urged residents and irate
youths to sheathe the sword and allow peace to reign while government
attends to all their demands in due course. He assured the youths of
his government’s determination to look into their plight as commission
of kicks off its work today.

Responding the Executive Chairman, Ifelodun LCDA, Hon Fatai Shuaib
Ajidagba thanked the Governor for his swift reactions and reiterated
his administration determination to consolidate on the ongoing peace
and restore normalcy to the communities in line with his directives
