LAGOS, Nigeria – The Lekki Concession Company (LCC), operators of the Lekki tollgate, has submitted video footage recorded by its surveillance camera on the night of October 20, 2020, when soldiers allegedly opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate.
The Managing Director of LCC, Abayomi Omomuwa, submitted a hard drive containing the footage on Tuesday.
Omomuwa’s submission was made to the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to probe the Lekki shootings, as well as complaints of human rights abuses against members of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
“I can confirm that inside here is the video footage that our surveillance camera was able to record for the 20th of October,” Omomuwa said.
According to Anakle CEO, Editi Effiong, who is at the hearing, “LCC is being led in testimony by a member of the LASG legal team. A hard drive has been admitted in evidence as containing the footage from the toll gate.
“LCC is also tendering press releases in which they denied the company was bribing in police to disrupt the protests.”
