EndSARS: Youths Frown At Oath Of Secrecy

Youths in Nigeria have frowned at an oath of secrecy issued to members at the Lagos panel probing the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Recall that the Lagos State government had created a judicial panel to investigate the atrocities of SARS on October 15.

Youths in Lagos State were represented by the duo of Rinu Oduala and Temitope Majekodunmi who joined the Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims on Tuesday.

However, an oath of secrecy which they were being cajoled to sign has since led to reactions since it was leaked on social media, as there are those who hold the opinion that details of hearings must be made public.

Meanwhile, the panel reportedly withdrew the oath before swearing in the youth reps.

Moe Odele, an EndSARS advocate and co-founder of the Feminist Coalition who gave the update said:

“This has been rejected after concerns were raised and a dialogue was held this morning. The panelists will not be signing this document,” the lawyer tweeted.

Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) President, Olumide Apata, journalists, observers, among others were at the venue of the sitting.
