Delta sets up judicial panel of inquiry



The Delta State Government has constituted an eight-member Judicial Panel of Inquiry to investigate allegations of police brutality and extra-judicial killings in the state.
A statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Chiedu Ebie, said that the panel, as approved by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, would receive and investigate complaints of police brutality or related extra–judicial killings in the state from victims of the disbanded Special Anti–Robbery Squad (SARS) or any other police unit, with a view to ascertaining their validity.
The statement added that the panel was also expected to recommend compensation or other remedies appropriate for each case.
According to the statement, the panel has Justice Celestina Ogisi (retd) as Chairman and Omamuzo Erebe as Secretary.
Other members of the panel are AIG David Igbodo (retd), Harrison Gwamnishu representing the youths, Godwin Oyovweadjebore representing students, Freedom Atsepoyi and Eris Jewo–Ibi representing the civil society groups and Nicholas Osadolor representing the Human Rights Commission.

The statement said that the panel would be inaugurated on Monday at the Government House, Asaba.
