#EndSARS: Group tackles Abiodun for not implementing report

A group – Young People’s Movement (YPM) – has berated Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, over his failure to compensate victims of police brutality, barely one year after the #EndSARS panel submitted its report.

Daily Trust had reported how victims lamented the governor’s failure to compensate them after receiving the report of a committee he set up.

On July 9, last year, Abiodun received the report of the panel with an assurance to implement the recommendations of the panel.

The panel after its findings recommended a total payment of over N218 million as compensation for 42 victims or their families for brutality and violation of human rights by police and other security personnel in Ogun State.

The youth group in a statement titled “EndSARS: Ogun State Youths and the future”, expressed worry that Abiodun had dashed the victims’ hope over his failure to implement the report.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Convener of YPM, Kayode Aderemi

“ENDSARS panels were set up, giving hopes that, within the shortest possible time, culpable officers would be dealt with and victims’ families would be compensated. Alas, our hopes were again dashed!

“While this issue of utmost importance to our youths may be handled as a theatre of the absurd, we are certain that posterity will remember all actions and inactions!

“In the coming weeks, YPM shall, _inter alia_, after a scrutiny of the track records of the Ogun State governorship candidates, declare where we pitch our tents. We will painstakingly scout for a candidate that has a proven track record of empathy for the lives and welfare of the Ogun State Youths and lend our weight accordingly.

“Until then, may Ogun State and Nigeria get back their pride of place among the comity of nations.”
