*recommend compensation and other remedial measures, where appropriate.
The Panel’s assignment should be concluded within a maximum of six (6) months, unless it shows convincing reasons why the State Governor should allow an extension.
There would also be Human Rights Public Complaints Team of between 2 to 3 persons to receive complaints on an ongoing basis. That team would be established by the Special Committee on Security and Human Rights.
It was resolved that each State Government shall also set up such a Complaints Office to which members of the public can relate by telephone or social media channels.

This does not make any sense, all police formations reports to the state commissioner of police who reports only to the IGP of police who in turn reports only the C in C been the president . The governors can only control a state police where the governors are the C in C.

Federal government have come again o. Which one is fund for compensating victims of brutality? Nigerian leaders don't joke with anything money they will embezzle it.
* The panel of inquiry on police brutality should only receive money after the conclusion of every case of brutality brought to them.
* Any security agent found to have violated human rights should lose part of their wages to the victims. A careless policeman may end up using his salaries to settle compensation. That way, they will be serious.
