The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has called for restraint over the purported EndSARS panel report in circulation, saying that the intention of those behind the leaked report constitutes another attempt to unleash further mystery on the state.

The Lagos State APC spokesperson, Seye Oladejo, in a statement, said the leakage of the report should be condemned by all and sundry.

He urged restraints in order not to set the state on fire again while everyone awaits the white paper on the reports.

Following the EndSARS protest last October in Lagos, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu inaugurated a nine-man judicial panel of inquiry and restitution set up to investigate cases of brutality and human rights violations committed by operatives of the dissolved SARS as well as to investigate the alleged shooting of protesters by the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate.

But few hours after the panel submitted its report to the governor on Monday, a version of the panel report emerged and has been circulating and generating reactions from different quarters, including human rights activists, government critics, the international community among others.

In the leaked report, 11 persons were said to have been killed at the tollgate.

The panel also indicted the army and the police, while it recommended that tollgate be renamed after EndSARS and October 20 of every year be declared toll free in honour of those killed during the protests.
