Lagos Not To Submit EndSARS Report To FG- Adesina

In the leaked report, Justice Doris Okuwobi-led’s panel said that at least nine persons were killed at the Lekki toll gate when soldiers stormed the tollgate to dispatch EndSARS protesters on October 20, 2020.

“The atrocious maiming and killing of unarmed, helpless and unresisting protesters while sitting on the floor and waving their Nigerian flags and while singing the National Anthem can be equated to a massacre in context,” the report partly reads.

The Governor of Lagos, San-Olu who received the report, initiated a Committee to bring forward a White Paper within the next two weeks to be considered by the Lagos State Executive Council.

While being interviewed on television, Adesina said the reports by the states’ panels won’t be submitted to the Federal Government.

When asked whether the states would submit the reports to the Federal Government, he said, “Not to the Federal Government. Under the law, Federal Government has no power to en-panel a probe by the states”.

“What would happen is that when the state comes up with pronouncements on that panel reports, that would then be of interest to the Federal Government; it is not as if they would bring it to the Federal Government.”

Adesina added that Nigerians should be reminded that 36 policemen were killed across the country during the EndSARS protests last year and the perpetrators should be held responsible.
