Statement on the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry Report

The United States welcomes the conclusion of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry with the transmission of its final report.  We look forward to the Lagos State government’s response as part of a process that represents an important mechanism of accountability regarding the #EndSARS protests and the events that took place near the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.  Those events led to serious allegations against some members of the security forces, and we look forward to the Lagos State and federal governments taking suitable measures to address those alleged abuses as well as the grievances of the victims and their families.
