The EndSARS panel report reveals the role of the Nigerian army and police in the deaths of several protesters at Lekki Road Gate in Lagos on October 20, 2020.
Yesterday, the Lagos State Judicial Commission at #EndSARS presented its report to the Lagos State government, in which they found, among other things, that military and police officers fired live ammunition at peaceful demonstrators, killing and wounding several.
Despite the videos and a lot of contradictory evidence, it is undeniable that the Nigerian government and military authorities initially and consistently denied that no one was killed in the incidents.
However, a panel in Lagos supported the killing. It also stated that the “deliberate absence of Nigerian army officers who participated in the Leki massacre and who were summoned by the group constituted a calculated attempt to conceal material evidence from the group”.
The panel also listed the names of those killed and injured by security forces in the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate on 20 October 2020 and recommended the dismissal of those involved.
The panel met for more than a year and received statements from applicants, witnesses, experts, and lawyers, The report, which is now circulating on almost all media platforms, highlights the findings of the Lagos Judicial Commission.
