The Police has advised persons being targeted for testifying at the Lagos Judicial Panel on Restitution for Victims of SARS-Related Abuses to lodge official complaints.

Despite the associated dangers, the command said they should physically report assaults at police stations.

Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu issued a statement on Tuesday in reaction to brutal attacks on witnesses.

Photos and videos of the victims narrating their ordeal in the hands of alleged government-sponsored agents are circulating on social media.

Adekunle assured that the security agency will not abdicate its duties “even in the face of daunting challenges”.

He quoted the CP Hakeem Odumosu as encouraging citizens attacked “to lodge a formal complaint at the nearest police station”.

“This is to enable the police take appropriate action by diligently investigating and prosecuting the cases”, the spokesman noted.
