Lagos #EndSARS report: Femi Adesina Areas that harm the federal government will be tackled
Femi Adesina, President Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, has stated that the Federal Government will only address aspects of the Lagos Judicial Panel on Police Brutality’s White Paper findings that concern it.
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that this was stated by Adesina during an interview on Channels Television this morning, November 22, when describing the Federal Government’s response to the situation.
“What would happen is that when the states come up with pronouncements on that panel report, that would then be of interest to the Federal Government.
Definitely, when the reports come out the ones that are Federal in nature will be considered. There are some things that would be Federal in nature, the Federal Government would tackle that but things that are state in nature, the state government will handle.
There is an Attorney General of the Federation who will advise and the needful would be done,” Adesina said
The presidential spokesperson, however, said he is not aware if some states that have completed their inquiry have so far submitted their reports to the Federal Government.
“I am not quite sure of that, but I know that areas that would affect the Federal Government will be looked into by the Federal Government.”he said
