The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters has said the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) obstructed the panel’s investigation by refusing to turn over some useful and vital information/evidence as requested by the Panel and the Forensic Expert engaged by the panel, even where such information and evidence was by the company’s admission, available.

This was revealed in a report submitted on Monday to the Lagos State Government by the Justice Doris Okuwobi-led panel.

“It manipulated the incomplete CCTV Video footage of the Lekki Toll Gate on the night of the 20th of October 2020, which it tendered before the Panel.” The report stated.


According to the panel, at least 11 persons were confirmed dead at the Lekki toll plaza on the night soldiers stormed there to disperse #EndSARS protesters on October 20, 2020.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had said while receiving the panel’s report on Monday that he would set up a four-member committee to raise a white paper on the report.

The Federal Government in reaction to the incident last year insisted that no unarmed protester was killed at the toll gate on October 20, 2020.
