    A human/Civil Rights Activist and member of the Delta State Human Rights Protection Committee, Comrade Israel Joe has called on the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa to compensate the #EndSARS victims as recommended by the Judicial Panel or he resigns his membership from the Delta State Human Rights Protection Committee.

    Isreal John stated this in a statement forwarded to newsmen in Warri on Tuesday January 25, 2022 which said that, “Compensate the #EndSARS Victims as Recommended By Judicial Panel or I resign my membership from the Delta State Human Rights Protection Committee.

    “I write to draw the attention of His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa that the compensation to the #EndSARS victims as recommended by the judicial Panel of Inquiry into Police Brutality and Extra Judicial killings have not been paid. This has continued to give me sleepless nights since I am the one nominated to represent the Civil Society Organizations in the Human Rights Protection Committee.

    “We recall the words of His Excellency during the inauguration of the Committee on 20th of October, 2021, where he promised to start up the payment for compensating the victims of Police Brutality as recommended by the Judicial Panel of Inquiry. However, this promise has not yet find fulfillments at this material time.

    “I wish to state unambiguously and unequivocally that once compensations is not kick started or paid before the end of April, I will have no other option than to resign my membership from the Delta State Human Rights Protection Committee as we shall continue to speak for the masses and their consistent plights.”
