#EndSARS Report: Rights activist accuses Sanwo-Olu of hypocrisy



By Timi Black

A Niger Delta based human rights activist Comrade Isreal Joe has accused Lagos state governor Sanwo-Olu of being hypocritical over comments on the #EndSARS probe white paper which was presented to him by the panel.

This was made available to Congress correspondent in a press statement on Thursday evening.

According to the activist, “I listened and watched with uttermost attention and broad displeasure, the way the White Paper presented to Sanwo-Olu the governor of Lagos State was intentionally painted black. Yes, the governor has turned that sacred, painstakingly, well investigated and fantastically written document into black paper by rejecting the report carried out by men and women of proven integrity and competent capacity”

The activist added: “The governor failed to understand that he has indirectly rubbish himself because, if they are not capable in the first place, he would not have inaugurated them as members of the Judicial Panel to look into the matter. He also did not realize that history is an unforgettable beast that will replay itself while not even demanded at no cost”.

The activist while bemoaning the action of the governor, said: “he should enjoy his peace walk himself along with paid and hired crowd that would walk with him not because they do not know the truth but because they must have their share in the national cake. The world know the truth and it cannot be compromised for any reason.

“I thought he would take a clue from his counterpart in Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who did not just supported the #EndSARS, created a Human Rights Protection committee chaired by himself, accepted the White Paper and would commence paying compensation to victims as recommended by the Panel.

“The golden date to the gate of freedom would not be forgotten in the annals of Nigeria democratic history as 20-10-20 where our fate was aborted by the orders of an unknown elites”, he asserted.
