The Presidency says the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami will advise the Federal Government on the next possible step on the EndSARS report.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that the Federal Government will only address areas within the White Paper report of the Lagos Judicial Panel on Police Brutality that concerns it, as the date for the official submission draws near.

Adesina, speaking today during an interview on Channels Television’s Breakfast Programme, Sunrise Daily said this while explaining steps which the Federal Government will take in handling the situation.

“What would happen is that when the states come up with pronouncements on that panel report, that would then be of interest to the Federal Government.

“Definitely, when the reports come out the ones that are Federal in nature will be considered. There are some things that would be Federal in nature, the Federal Government would tackle that but things that are state in nature, the state government will handle.

“There is an Attorney General of the Federation who will advise and the needful would be done,” Adesina said.

The presidential spokesperson, however, said he is not aware if some states that have completed their inquiry have so far submitted their reports to the Federal Government.

“I am not quite sure of that, but I know that areas that would affect the Federal Government will be looked into by the Federal Government.”

Speaking on the idea behind the setting up of the probe panel, Mr Adesina said that the Federal Government did not give a directive for their set-up but it was just “an idea” suggested to the state government.

“It couldn’t have been a directive because the Federal Government doesn’t have the power. It was just an idea,” he said.
