Two representatives of the #EndSARS movement on the Lagos judicial panel, have disclosed that they would be donating their allowances to the victims of police brutality in the country.
The duo, Rinu Oduala and Majekodunmi Temitope, said in a statement that their donation is their gesture towards contributing to the delivery of justice in the light of the call for the end to police brutality.
“One of the ways we would like to actively do so is by donating all proceeds of any allowances allocated to us to the Lagos State government fund for the victims,” the statement read. “We hope this will galvanise Lagos State to increase the amount it has pledged, and further emphasises our commitment to justice and reparations.”
They duo said they would not be able to make the donations yet as their accounts have been blocked.
“Besides, it is not currently possible to receive funds into blocked accounts,” they said.
Recall that the Central Bank of Nigeria secured a controversial court order to freeze the bank accounts of some of the #EndSARS protesters. That move has been condemned by many Nigerians and activists.
The two judicial panel members, nonetheless, urged Nigerians who have been victims of the brutality in the hands of the now disbanded SARS to send in petitions to the judicial panels in the states they were brutalised.Follow us on social media
