Lagos Panel forbids Journalists from using mobile phone during session

1 Mins read

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.”
