The leaked EndSars report was on Tuesday rejected by Lagos State governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, saying the leaked version was unauthorised, unsigned and has re-opened old wounds.

While addressing a World Press Conference at the State House, Alausa, Ikeja, the governor said while he had no doubt in the integrity of the Chairman of the panel, Retired Justice Doris Okuwobi, the leaked version of the report was not signed and authorized by the panel or the government.

He further said its leakage has reopened old wounds when the state has just recovered from the aftermath of the crisis.

“While I commend the panel for undertaking its task to the best of its abilities, it is however regrettable that the panel’s work and the leakage of an unauthorized version of the report have generated much tension. Sadly, a deep wound has been reopened.

The heated exchanges among various shades of opinion on the report have unfortunately put us all at the risk of missing the larger picture; the fact that what we all seek in common is a land in which we are all safe and secure, law enforcement agents are trusted, and justice is guaranteed for all,” the governor lamented.

He called for harmony and urged Lagosians to eschew anger, and “choose light over darkness.”

“The choice confronting us today is between restoring greater harmony or doing greater harm. I choose harmony over harm,”
Sanwo-Olu urged.
