Counsel for some # EndSARS protesters in Lagos State , Mr Adesina Ogunlana , has said Governor Babajide Sanwo -Olu will have to appear before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged killing of # EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of october 2020.
Ogunlana said since the military claimed before the panel that their operation on that day was on the invitation of the governor , it would be important for the governor to appear before the panel.
He added that his Attorney General, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo ( SAN) , has come to appear before the panel to just make a short speech and to affirm that the Lagos State Government is indeed committed to unraveling the truth about what happened at Lekki on that day making the governor a factor and must appear before the panel.
While the Nigerian Army has consistently maintained that it did not kill any of the #EndSARS protesters , Ogunlana , on the other hand , insisted that they were lost of lives.
His clients , Kamsiyochukwu Perpetual , Dabira Ayuku and Samuel Isah , had in their individual affidavits on oath submitted to the retired Justice Doris Okuwobi- led panel , stressed that soldiers and policemen shot and killed protesters.
