The head of the legal department of LCC, Gbolahan Agboluwaje, made this revelation on Friday. He said this on October 30  when it appeared before the Lagos panel of inquiry on victims of SARS.

Agboluwaje noted that the footage of the October 20 shootings of the #EndSARS protesters by the soldiers was available. He also added that the LCC received a summons from the panel on Wednesday, October 28. The invitation was for the company to appear before it to present the footage and the investigation report.

This is just as the panel at the scene of the shooting found five bullet shell casings. The bullet casings were seen on the floor, inside the drainage. Some were also found on the stairs of the Tollgate plaza by people present there.

Abayomi Omomuwa, the Managing Director of the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), during the visit, told the panel that the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras mounted on a mast at the tollgate area was working during the shootings.

He, however, noted that though the CCTV had captured the footage of the happenings of October 20. However, he said it was currently not working. This is due to damage caused by hoodlums during the carnage of October 21.

On the panel’s return to the venue of its proceedings, Justice Okuwobi said that the panel had made observations and had asked questions at the scene.

She also noted that the panel had not admitted the October 20 footage as evidence and when it is admitted in evidence, it will be played at the proceedings.





At the resumed proceedings of the panel yesterday, the head of the legal department of LCC, Mr Gbolahan Agboluwaje told the panel that they had no legal representation as they got the letter of invitation from the panel late on Wednesday.

He said “when we received the letter on Wednesday we discovered that three things were required, which are the footage, the investigation report and any other document. We have the footage, we have not done the investigation report and we don’t have other documents”.
