#EndSARS: No petition received yet, says Gombe panel

Judicial Panel of Inquiry into complaints of human rights violations by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) IN Gombe State, says it has yet to receive memoranda from members of the public. This panel was inaugurated more than a week ago by Gombe State governor, Inuwa Yahaya.
