At last, some Nigerians who were hit by soldiers’ bullet during the October 20 shooting of protesters at the Lekki tollgate stormed the Lagos state government judicial panel December 4.
The victims who appeared before the panel were numbered 15 in number showing telltale of their ordeals.
14 of the victims said they were shot at Lekki Toll Gate during the mindless shooting that evening, while one was allegedly shot at Ojodu Berger. The EndSARS counsel, Adesina Ogunlana led them into the venue.
Meanwhile, one Mr Nathaniel Solomon, who accompanied them alleged that his younger brother, Abouta Solomon was shot dead at the toll gate. According to him, Abouta has since been buried in his hometown in Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
A lady, Aiyedungbe Olufunmi Grace, was at the panel hearing said her brother died at LASUTH after suffering gunshot wounds to the head. She told the panel that after her brother’s death, the hospital authorities changed the story saying he died of COVID-19.
The Nigerian military position is that though the soldiers went there with live bullets, it never shot any at the protesters.
