Residents of Ogun State have been enjoined to always take full advantage of all the legal means available for justice delivery whenever they feel cheated or believe that their human rights have been abused or violated.

The Chairman, Ogun Judicial Panel of Investigation, Justice Solomon Olugbemi gave the advise on Wednesday at the Magistrate Court 1, Isabo, Abeokuta while responding to a petitioner, Mr. Odupitan Daniel who brought a complaint against police officers at Adigbe division for allegedly charging him to Court without proper investigation.

According to the Chairman, “as a Panel, we are here to investigate complaints of victims on Police Brutality. We cannot say that police should not do their official duties, neither can we go against the law that empowered them to charge suspects to Court”.

Justice Olugbemi used the avenue to reaffirm that the purpose for setting up the Panel was to receive and investigate complaints of victims on Police Brutality, Human Rights Violations and Extra Judicial killings by security operatives within the State adding that appropriate recommendations would be made to government at the end of the sittings.
