Harrison Gwamnishu, Nigerian activist and member of Delta State Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up to investigate allegations of police brutality and extrajudicial killings in the state, has accused the Police and DSS officials of allegedly arresting participants of the #EndSars protests in the state.
The alarm came on a day sister of one of the #EndSARS protesters, Onomene Adene, explained how she was deceived by the police who arrested her brother, Eromosele Peter Adene, who she added had a liver problem, The Vanguard reports.
Raising the alarm in a statement yesterday, Gwamnishu, while questioning the intentions of the federal government, also accused the police and Department of State Services, DSS, as the brains behind the arrest.
Though the judicial panel member did not state if he would be withdrawing his membership of the state panel, he said: “You can’t beg citizens to sit and negotiate and at the same time freeze their accounts.”
This is even as an Abuja-based activist, Kenechukwu Okeke, Monday filed a criminal complaint before a Chief Magistrate’s court in Abuja against 50 persons, including Sam Adeyemi, Davido, Tuface Idibia, Nwankwo Kanu and 46 others, for their alleged roles in the #EndSARS protests that took place last month
He alleged that during the riot, his properties were destroyed, adding that the defendants who promoted the #EndSARS protests must be brought to justice.
