One Mr Adesina Ogunlana, an #EndSARS lawyer demands that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state appear before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll plaza on October 20.
The lawyer recounted how Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo, the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, disclosed that soldiers were deployed after Governor Sanwo-Olu reached out to them.
According to Ogunlana, it will be important for the governor to appear before the panel, particularly to demonstrate his professed belief in the rule of law as a governor.
“Of course, that is taken. That person (Sanwo-Olu) will have to come; he’s a factor and he will come. He says he believes in the rule of law, his Attorney General, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), has come to appear before that 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; and the military has mentioned him, so, he is a factor”, Ogunlana told Punch.
