The Judicial Panels of Inquiry on police brutality and other human rights abuses resumed proceedings after going on recess for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Oyo and Kogi States remain the only states that have constituted a Judicial Panel of Inquiry but are yet to commence sittings, as petitions continue to be submitted at the Panel secretariat. Borno, Jigawa, Kano, Kebbi, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara States are yet to constitute a Judicial Panel of Inquiry.
In the weeks under review, Katsina and Niger States Judicial Panels of Inquiry have concluded their Panel sittings and reports are to be compiled and sent to the Governors.
