The Gombe State Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up to look into complaints of human rights violations by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad has said it is yet to receive petitions from members of the public.
The panel was inaugurated on October 31st by Gombe State governor, Inuwa Yahaya.
The secretary of the panel and the acting Director of Public Prosecutions in the state, Mohammed Kumo, said the commission was still expecting victims of police brutality to come forward with their complaints.
Kumo said, “We are yet to receive memoranda from members of the public, but we are still waiting for a memo. As you are aware, the commission has expanded its window of communication; we can also receive entries through emails.
“We have two desk officers for those who want to file their complaints manually.”
