The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing allegations of human rights abuses by the police has forbidden journalists from using cell phones during the session.
This is put in place to stop the newsmen from live-streaming the ongoing session.
The panel at the sitting on Tuesday pasted the new rule on the walls and doors, reading, “Please switch off all mobile phones,” “use of phones is restricted beyond this point.”
To clarify the restriction, the Chairman of the Panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi (retd.), said it was as a reason of security consciousness.
The Lagos State Judicial Panel has been going on for weeks with victims of police brutality sharing their experiences.
Officers of the Nigerian Army and the Lekki Concession Company have also appeared before the panel to explain their involvement in the shooting of peaceful and harmless #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on October 20.
