Comrade Joe praised Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa and the state administration for heeding his requests to compensate victims of police brutality and extra-judicial executions.

According to him, “This is the best way to go and I want to use this medium to thank His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State for responding to this timely call.

“Really, #EndSARS advocates won the battle. I also want to use this medium to respond to the news making rounds that some #EndSARS protesters are still under detention in some areas of the country. Family members and friends of those victims in detention should reach us as soon as possible.”
