OVERVIEW OF: #EndSARS: LCC Ready To Release Lekki Shooting Video - Company Tells Panel
The Management of the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) has stated that it is ready to show footage of soldiers of the Nigerian Army shooting at peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
This was made known on Friday by the Head of the Legal Department of LCC, Mr Gbolahan Agboluwaje.
Speaking during an appearance before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for Restitution for Victims of SARS and related abuses and Other Matters, Agboluwaje said there are hours of recordings on the CCTV footage.
While stating that the LCC received a summons from the panel on Wednesday to appear before it, Agboluwaje clarified that the “LCC is prepared to air the footage before the panel” but no investigative report or document is available.
He added that “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.”
Speaking further, he told the panel that the Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa, won’t be able to testify before them due to short notice.
According to Agboluwaje, 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.
