Lekki Bloodbath: #EndSARS protesters seem earlier than Lagos panel, demand viewers
Three of the #EndSARS protesters on Friday appeared earlier than the Lagos Panel of Judicial Inquiry probing the October 20 shootings by troopers on the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.
The protesters – Victoria Oniru, Dabira Ayuku, and Perpetual Kamsiyuchukwu – via their lawyer, Mr Adesina Ogunlana, demanded to be granted an viewers.
Adesina advised the retired Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel that he want to cross-examine the Managing Director of the Lekki Concession Firm, operator of the Lekki toll gate, Abayomi Omowuwa.
Although counsel for the Lagos State Authorities, Mr Jelili Owonikoko (SAN), and LCC lawyer, Mr Rotimi Seriki, earlier opposed Ogunlana’s look on the premise that “#EndSARS” will not be an entity identified to the regulation, they later withdrew their objection when Ogunlana referred to as out his three purchasers.
“I’m not representing spirits or ghosts. We’re right here, to inform the reality. These are a part of the folks operating underground, being threatened,” Ogunlana stated in response to the objection by Owonikoko and Seriki.
Owonikoko had described #EndSARS as a nebulous entity with no construction or chief, questioning the place Ogunlana obtained his instruction to seem earlier than the panel.
Seriki, on his half, had stated because the LCC Managing Director was earlier than the panel on the subpoena, “he can’t be cross-examined by each Tom, Dick, and Harry.”
Following the withdrawal of the objection to Ogunlana’s showing, Justice Okuwobi, in a ruling, admitted the protesters as a celebration and allowed their lawyer’s look.
The panel is for the time being viewing the video footage of the evening of October 20 when troopers opened hearth on the Lekki tollgate.
Based on the LCC MD, the footage was retrieved from a surveillance digital camera mounted by the agency on a mast on the tollgate. Punch
