President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata has said governors who have set up panels of enquiry into the activities of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have the rights to do so.

Akpata spoke about the panels when he appeared on the latest edition of Sunday Politics on Channels Television.

NBA President, Olumide Akpata
Law TV had earlier reported that governors in many states had set up panels of enquiry after the #EndSARS protests, which held across the nation and led to the disbandment of SARS and pushed for police reforms.

The NBA President explained that he had not heard any argument against the legality of the panels.

He said such an argument would be in contradiction to the position of the NBA in any case.

According to him, in other states where the NBA is not involved, the association’s preferred approach will be to observe proceedings at those panels and ensure that the laws of the land are upheld.
