The Management of the Lekki Concession Company, LLC, has disclosed that it is now ready to show footage of the Lekki toll gate shootings of October 20.
The agency’s Head of the Legal Department, Mr Gbolahan Agboluwaje disclosed this when he appeared before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for Restitution for Victims of SARS and related abuses and Other Matters yesterday, October 30.
Agboluwaje also revealed that there are hours of recordings on the CCTV footage.
Reacting to summons of presenting the October 20 footage, an investigation report and any other document, Agboluwaje noted that no investigative report or document is available.
In his words, “LCC is prepared to air the footage before the panel” but no investigative report or document is available.
“We have the footage. We do not have an investigation report because we know that investigations are ongoing and we have not been able to provide any document.
“We had a very short notice and we brought what we were able to lay our hands on.”
Agboluwaje who also noted that the Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa would not be able to testify due to the short notice, said this was because the company was yet to hire an external legal counsel to represent him.
Justice Doris Okuwobi (Retd.), the Chairman of the nine-man panel, granted Agboluwaje’s request for a short adjournment and also disclosed that the programme of the day for the panel was to visit the locus (scene of the Lekki Shooting) and to have proceedings based on their findings from the visit.
Justice Doris said, “We were initially to take note of what we see at the locus and today’s proceedings was to be subsequent to what we see there.
“The panel will arise very shortly to visit the locus. The panel noted that it is required of the witness to have a counsel of his choice. We will not take the proceedings of the visit of the locus until then.”
