Oyo ENDSARS Judicial Panel Inspects Damaged Properties In Ibadan



Oyo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality one Thursday visited Kannike Ode-ye Community Ibadan where residents alleged that some unknown hoodlums vandalised their houses and shops during the last year’s EndSARS protest.

The visit of the panel was sequel to a petition written by the residents of the community who were appealing to the state government to compensate them for their loss.

According to the residents, more than fifty houses and shops were either  burnt or burgled.
Among the shops owners was Mr. Adeoye Adejare who said the protesters burnt thirty caskets he was selling.

During the visit, aimed  at assessing the level of damage done to the community, members of the Panel discovered that the degree of the damage were up to what some of the residents claimed.
The residents, who were not aware of the visit, were shocked when they were asked to show the property burnt or burgled but some of them failed to defend their claim.
For example, one of them was claiming five million for sewing machine, and some clothes, including workshop.
A woman claimed to be selling Italian shoes, but her shop only contained used shoes and bags.
However, the visit almost turned violent when some residents claimed that they were not carried along when others were writing petitions.
