EndSARS: LCC Tells Judicial Panel They Are Ready To Show
Lekki Shootings Footage
The Management of the Lekki Concession Company has
expressed readiness to show the footage of the shootings
of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate by soldiers.
The Head of the Legal Department of LCC, Mr Gbolahan
Agboluwaje, made this known when he appeared before the
Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for Restitution for
Victims of SARS and related abuses and Other Matters on
Friday.
Agboluwaje noted that the footage of the October 20
shootings of the #EndSARS protesters by the soldiers is
available.
He said there are hours of recordings on the CCTV footage.
He said the LCC received a summons from the panel on
Wednesday, to appear before it, present the October 20
footage, an investigation report and any other document.
He clarified that while the “LCC is prepared to air the
footage before the panel” but no investigative report or
document is available.
“We have the footage. We do not have an investigation
report because we know that investigations are ongoing and
we have not been able to provide any document.
“We had a very short notice and we brought what we were
able to lay our hands on,” he added.
Agboluwaje also told the panel that due to the short notice
of the summoning, the Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi
Omomuwa, would not be able to testify.
He explained that this is because the company was yet to
hire an external counsel to represent the MD.
However, Omomuwa had been sworn-in to give evidence
before the panel.
Responding, the Chairman of the nine-man panel, Justice
Doris Okuwobi (Retd.), granted Agboluwaje’s request for a
short adjournment.
Okuwobi noted that the programme of the day for the panel
was to visit the locus (scene of the Lekki Shooting) and to
have proceedings based on their findings from the visit.
“We were initially to take note of what we see at the locus
and today’s proceedings was to be subsequent to what we
see there.
“The panel will arise very shortly to visit the locus. The panel
noted that it is required of the witness to have a counsel of
his choice. We will not take the proceedings of the visit of
the locus until then,” she said.
