Popular Human Rights activist, Israel Joe has called on the Senator Ifeanyi Okowa led administration of Delta State to implement the resolutions reached by the END SARS judicial panel.
Focus Naija can report that Israel Joe made the call through a press statement received by our reporter on Sunday, 3rd October, 2021.
According to the ace activist, implementing the resolutions will ensure justice for firsthand victims of police brutality and failure to do so becomes injustice to those that the panel has recommended compensation for.
He also gave kudos to the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Ari Mohammed
while calling out the Divisional Police Officers of the Sapele and Otu-Jeremi Divisions for extortions still being carried out by their men especially at the Otokutu Bridge where motorists and tricycle riders are made to part with N100 each.
The statement reads;
Implement Judicial Panel Report – Delta Based Niger-Delta Activist tells Governor Okowa
AS a paramount proponent of the #EndSARS in Delta State, we are seriously concerned about the delay of the implementation of the Judicial Panel report by Delta State government which has been submitted to the governor months ago. Deltans have been patiently waiting for the moment where they will celebrate justice against Police brutality, oppression, victimization, extortion etc. The governor has showed serious commitment towards ending police impunity and we appeal he should act on the report timely as Deltans are now disturbed and calling us endlessly on same.
The judicial panel report when implemented would mean a lot for justice for those who witness firsthand brutality and injustice to whom the panel recommended compensation. However, while we appreciate the works done by the Delta State Commissioner of Police CP Ari Mohammed Ali in the reduction of crime, especially the cult related activities in the state, we also call in the CP to call the Sapele DPO to order as that place have been a den of extortion. The DPO in Otu-Jeremi should also ensure that his men who always mount checkpoint at Otokutu Bridge near Warri to collect 100naira each from motorist, keke riders and bus drivers should decease from such criminal act.
