The Lagos State Judicial Panel on the Inquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses & Lekki Toll Gate Incident on Friday, discovered bullet shells at the Lekki toll gate plaza.
The panel, led by its chairman Justice Doris Okuwobi had visited the scene of the Lekki tollgate shooting as part of their activities and investigations into the circumstances surrounding the Lekki toll gate incident.
While on the assignment, five more bullet shells believed to have been from the Tuesday night shooting of 20th October, 2020 during which soldiers reportedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters were recovered.
Before Friday’s latest discovery, the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola had also discovered a video camera left on site at the scene of the Lekki toll gate shootings during the #EndSARS protests in Lagos State.
Fashola discovered the camera on Sunday during an on the spot assessment carried out by him and some other Ministers and Governors from the South-Western States.
There have been confusions about who ordered the military to the scene of the Lekki toll gate protests and the shooting which occurred later.
Both the military authorities and the Lagos State government have denied deploying soldiers to the scene while the federal government also claims it is awaiting a further briefing from the committee set up to investigate the incident.
However, DJ Switch who was there and made a live Instagram video on the night of the shooting claims the security operatives shot and killed some protesters. She also displayed some of the bullet shells allegedly picked up from the scene of the shooting in a video where she recounted her ordeals from the night.
Bodies of those reportedly shot are also yet to be found.
