The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution on SARS, paid a visit to the Military hospital in Falomo, Ikoyi to inspect the morgue it houses.
A lawyer, Ebun Adegboruwa, who is also a member of the panel, stated that confidential information had been provided to the panel that the morgue may be crucial to the it’s investigation.
“We have confidential information that the military hospital here is relevant in the investigation of the Lekki event”
“We heard this hospital is controlled by 65 Battalion and under the 81 Division. We are also taking steps to reach military authorities.”
Being that it was an impromptu visit, the Army authorities were not informed ahead of time, hence they were initially denied access but later allowed into the premises after about 30 minutes.
However, they found the morgue empty and they were told that it’s undergoing renovation.
