It's been four months since the lives of innocent and unarmed Nigerian youths were tragically gunned down at the Lekki toll gate on the 20th of October,2020. It is still not known as to who gave the orders for unarmed civilians to be shot and killed.
After the horrific incident which took place on the 20th. On the 25th, while conducting a tour of the Lekki toll gate led by the Lagos State Governor Sanwo Olu , ministers from the South- West and accompanied by the minister of works and housing, Babtunde Fashola discovered a hidden camera of which he carefully wrapped in a brown handkerchief and added that the exhibit would aid in the investigation process, five days after the shooting and after the crime scene had been swept.
Fashola and the cameraFashola subsequently gave the camera to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo Olu who promised to hand it over to the Judicial panel.
Ebun - Olu Adegboruwa, the representative of civil society on the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged killing of # EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki toll gate, has revealed what Sanwo Olu is yet to do to the camera found by Fashola, since more than 3 months of it's discovery.
On what Sanwo Olu is yet to do to the camera found by Fashola, Adegboruwa revealed that the camera given to Sanwo Olu for forensic analysis and in depth investigation has not been handed over to the EndSARS Judicial Panel of Inquiry up to this day. He also revealed that Sanwo Olu and Lagos State Chief pathologist are yet to appear before the panel and tender autopsy results of deaths and CCTV footages of all mortuarties in Lagos State from 20th of October, 2020.
Now the question here is, why has the Lagos State governor not handed over the exhibit found at the crime scene to the panel of Inquiry?, Is there a hidden agenda that we do not know. The reason for the Judicial Panel of Inquiry is to give justice to victims of police brutality and to actually know why the toll gate lights was switched off prior the invasion of soldiers that faithful night. Why has Sanwo Olu not submitted that evidence and why has he not appeared before the panel?
