Mr. Femi Falana who is a Human Rights Lawyer has revealed that the barracks of the army men who shot prostesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20 have been identified.
Speaking on ARISE TV on Monday, October 26, Falana, said his group the Alliance on Surviving COVID-19 And Beyond (ASCAB) that he chairs has found the location of the soldiers who shot the protesters.
“We have already identified the barracks where the soldiers left for Lekki, we have already identified the barracks.
The President was likely to have been told, soldiers were ordered so I want to believe that’s why it was not addressed and they said it was a rumour but I think the facts are emerging now, that indeed soldiers went to Lekki, indeed they fired at protesters and indeed some of the protesters at least two have been officially acknowledged to have died from gunshot wounds.”
He further added that an investigation will be made into the shooting by his group.
“ASCAB shall establish an Independent National Citizen’s Panel of Inquiry under a number of conditions Composition of the Citizen’s Panel of Inquiry shall comprise representatives of credible and identified organisations of the youth that took part in the #Endsars protest movement, including the Feminist Coalition, among others; representatives of credible and tested civil society organisations,” he mentioned.
