#EndSARS : CSOs demand publication of govt white paper, justice for victims of police attack  in Abia
By  Steve Oko
Civil Society and human rights groups based  in Abia State under the aegis of  Abia Civil Society Network, ACSON, have demanded the publication of the Government White Paper on the burning of houses in Aba by some police personnel one year after the  incident occurred.
The group also demanded justice for the victims of the attack, insisting that those behind the dastardly act should be made to face the law.
ACSON in a press statement  captioned ‘Police Brutality and Chaos in Aba’ on October 2nd, 2019″,  condemned the fracas that ensued during which both officers of the Nigeria Police Force and civilians were killed.
The statement jointly signed by Amaka Biachi, ACSON Convener; Chuka Okoye, Secretary; and Cassius Ukwugbe Co-convener, ACSON, said that the report of the incident should not be swept under the carpet.
“Several residential buildings were razed and children and women abused and rendered homeless in Oko-Jombo area of Ngwa Road, Aba”, the statement said.
ACSCON commended the State Government for setting up a panel of inquiry to investigate the incident but expressed worry that after a year the panel’s report is yet to be made public.
“While ACSON commends the  response of the various stakeholders and elected representatives which attracted relief materials from National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), we will not fail to recognize the intervention of the Abia State government to the plight of victims by setting-up a Panel of Inquiry and the meeting of the Governor with affected victims at Governor’s Lodge in Aba.
“However, it is disheartening that one year after the atrocious incident took place, the affected are still in a state of physical and mental neglect. Also, promises made to them have not been met.
” In view of this, we at ACSON after a meeting make the following demands: That the Abia State Government without further delay should make public the reports and findings of the Panel of Inquiry headed by Dr Ukpai Agwu Ukpai which was set up on October 2, 2019 with a two-week mandate.
“That the Abia State Government should fulfill all her promises to victims, especially the affected landlords and residents who met with the Governor’s at his Lodge in Aba.
“That the Abia State Government should make necessary provisions and efforts to alleviate the plight of victims and residents of the affected area by providing them with basic amenities and infrastructures; and that the perpetrators of this heinous crime be prosecuted so that justice could be served to the living and the dead.”
