Sunday Imo, chairman of the panel, made this known when he submitted the report of the panel to Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of the state, on Friday.

Speaking while handing over the five-volume report to the SSG, Imo said the first volume contained the main report, the second covered all the petitions and the third has the panel’s records and proceedings.

Imo said the panel received 86 petitions and that 46 went through full hearing while the remaining cases were dismissed.

Receiving the report, Ikpeazu who was represented by Chris Ezem, secretary to the state government, commended the panel for rendering “historic and selfless services to their fatherland”.

He said the state government would clinically study the report with a view to implementing it and that the report would guide the public on how best to relate with the police and other security agencies.

He noted that the security agencies need the support and collaboration of the residents in order to do their work effectively.
