Mr. Adesina Ogunlana, a lawyer for #EndSARS, said that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu would have to appear before the Inquiry Judicial Panel to investigate the shooting that took place at Lekki tollgate on October 20.
Recounting how Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo, Commander of the 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, alleged that soldiers were deployed after they were reached by Governor Sanwo-Olu, Ogunlana said that it would be important for the Governor to appear before the panel, particularly to demonstrate his professed belief in the rule of law.
When asked whether the governor’s appearance was important to his clients’ case and whether he would press for the governor’s appearance before the court, Ogunlana told Punch;
“That is, of course taken. That person (Sanwo-Olu) is going to have to come; he’s a factor and he’s going to come. He insists that he believes in the rule of law, that his attorney general, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), came to the panel to give a brief statement and to state that the Lagos State Government is still committed to unraveling the facts about what happened that day at Lekki; and he was listed by the military, so he’s a factor.
