Nigerian Army appears before Lagos panel, to show Lekki shootings footage



Officers of the Nigerian Army, 81 Division, have arrived at the venue of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry on SARS to give its updated account of the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate, Lagos, on October 20, 2020.

The army had earlier responded to to a summons by the retired Justice Doris Okuwobi-led Judicial Panel, by submitting the names of three Lieutenant Generals and a Lieutenant Colonel who will testify before the panel.

The shooting of protesters on the night of Tuesday, Oct 20 was vehemently denied by army authorities, as it told the panel that it was ready to show videos capturing its activities at the tollgate on that ill-fated night.

The military officers are led by Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos.
